Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace

Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace is so soft and silky! This plied laceweight yarn is an opulent addition to Malabrigo's gorgeous line, a blend of light and soft baby alpaca and drapey, lustrous silk. Baby Silkpaca Lace is dyed in dazzling colorways with all the striking combinations and depth of color you expect from Malabrigo. Made in Peru.

Note: As with all hand-dyed yarns, colors vary from dye lot to dye lot. The yarn color you receive may look different than the color pictured below, and the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

Please note: Malabrigo Rios is produced in dye lots of 5. Any order for more than 5 skeins will be of mixed dye lots.

I bought 853 Abril - just gorgeous amethyst shade ! I am making crocheted shawl for my sister and I could not be happier with shine and drape that it is already showing in my work : ). This is the first time I am using this yarn and I was somewhat surprised with it's tendency to split, I guess that part is due to silk content. I am using very small hook size (2.00 mm), and that might be also contributing to finicky behavior of this yarn. However, all of the effort will pay off at the end, so I do not mind that this project will take somewhat longer time to finish.

The yarn has a nice feel, but color 'carrot' should have been named 'dark carrot' I found using sz 1 needles made scarf too small. Starting over with larger needles. Using the herringbone pattern; I like the border but guess a heavier wgt. yarn would work up better.

Pros

  • Beautiful Silken Sheen
  • Does Not Split
  • Lovely Intense Colours
  • Washes Well

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Shawl

    Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

    I crocheted a shawl with this yarn earlier this year and am very happy with the result. Even though the yarn looks and feels soft and slightly fluffy, it does not shed which I think is especially essential with a shawl. In the meantime, I have bought the yarn in another colorway and am planning to make another shawl soon. A gorgeous yarn!

    Best Uses

      Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

      This yarn turned out to be too fine for the project I had in mind which wasn't lace.

      I knit a lot of lace, and this yarn will be excellent for that.

      This is gorgeous stuff!

      Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

      I purchased this yarn to use on my knitting machine for a light weight sweater/jacket. Unfortunately I did not buy enough the first time around, so had to purchase additional. The dye lot was definitely different, but worked ok. The yarn has a great soft hand, knits easily and blocks well. The colors are very rich. Even when I ripped out the knitting, the yarn did not split.

      Cons

      • Tricky To Wind Into Ball

      Best Uses

      • Shawl
      • Wrap

      Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

      Working on an open lace work shawl. I'm using the color "piedras" and it is stunning! The colorway ranges from a rich brown to warm gold; with pops of rust and orange. Silk makes this yarn so lustrous and the alpaca is incredibly soft. Light and airy, I am comfortable I can wear this beautiful shawl without it feelling too warm. The light and airiness contributes to it being a challenge to wind into a ball from the hank. But tough it out; the end result is gorgeous!

      Beautiful color and softness

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

      I've been knitting many years, but this is the first time I've knitted a lace shawl with beading. The yarn is incredibly strong. I had to redo several rows, and the yarn held up, although it does easily drop stitches if not careful. The shawl turned out beautifully, with softness and a brilliant color (Ravalry red)

      Incredible Yarn!

      By Highland Heart

      from Seattle

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

      This is the most incredible yarn I have worked with and seen in a long time. I am not normally able to wear animal fibers such as wool, alpaca, mohair, kidsilk, etc., but the silk and baby alpaca combo in this yarn is a dream--so incredibly soft I can actually wear it next to my highly allergic skin. The colors are amazing, much better than monitors can show. It's a true fine laceweight; I held two strands together to get a sportweight for a certain project and WOW--just gorgeous! It was the polar morn I used, but I know I will be using different colors and coming back to this yarn again and again. Amazingly soft, yet strong and with a beautiful delicate halo.

      Fantastic Yarn

      By texas quilt woman

      from Lubbock, TX

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

      I am new to knitting with a lace yarn. Quite frankly, I am new to knitting. This yarn is wonderful. It does not split or fray. It will be my "go to" yarn for lace weight projects. I would not hesitate to recommend it to any knitter. I am using it to make a scarf for my daughter.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I am always pleased with service from WEBS. Orders are delivered promptly and merchandise is well packaged so as to avoid damage to enclosed product.
      My "go to" "store" for yarn, needles, etc.
