    great yarn - perfect for next-to-skin

    I'm using this for a moebius shawl. The project has been tossed around for a couple of years. The yarn felts with work (it's about 1/2 silk) so I can do spit-joins but it hasn't compacted while I've made it wait.

    The pattern is a garter stitch with simple lace at intervals (from a Cat Bordhi pattern). Although a single, it shows the stitches well. I find it easy to knit (I'm using a size 7 Addi Turbo Lace needle). The yarn does not have a tendency to split; it flows easily through my fingers and around the needles. I like the way its multi colors display; there is no striping (an effect I didn't want), and the "pooling" is small - maybe a two-row "pool" (I like pooling, but only on the right project and this isn't it).

    I fully intend to work with it again. I think a new knitter could use it, as I don't find it takes any particular consideration.

    The only "con" (and I don't think of it that way) is that I don't think I'd use it for a felting project - but there are plenty of yarns to use for felting and, given the next-to-skin softness of this yarn, I would rather use it for shawls, hats, scarves, and perhaps sweaters.

    I bought 5 skeins. 3 were a tangled mess. I had to throw one of them out. The other 2 took between 1-2 hours to untangle. When I get my wool I just want to knit. A shame because the wool itself is beautiful - it feels more silky then wooly. Good for children, or adults, who don't like itchy wool.

        Comments about Malabrigo Silky Merino:

        I purchased the yarn specifically to make a Swirl sweater and it is coming out fantastic. The colors I ended up with was not my first choice as the inventory seems to be on short supply (backorder). I originally did not like the look of the yarn in the hanks, but it is coming out beautifully knitted. It feels wonderful as I knit with it and I can just imagine wearing the soft cozy sweater. I just hope that it will stand up well when washed and not pill.

          i bought some other brand yarn on a store closing sale, and found that it would not suffice for a pair of socks. online searching found that line of yarn was discontinued, so I found this as nearest in composition. It works.

              Comments about Malabrigo Silky Merino:

              I absolutely love this yarn, the multi-hued colors are subtle, rich, and deep with a quiet sheen. When knitted up, the fabric has a nice drape and is ultra soft, delightful! I used this product in a multi-colored modular sweater so the variegated colors were perfect. This will be one of my go-to yarns in the future. It is softly spun so I expect that it may pill, time will tell.

                great yarn, the only con I can think of is that it sticks to itself. Beware of this if you roll the yarn into a ball yourself.

                        I ordered this yarn way back in January and really forgot about it. Luckily, Webs didn't forget. I decided to knit a sweater and needed more yarn than I originally ordered and WEBS delivered. Thank you. The yarn is a dream to knit.
