Malabrigo Silky Merino

Malabrigo Silky Merino is a dreamy blend of merino and silk in Malabrigo's stunning colors. Create luxurious garments and cozy, yet sophisticated accessories with Malabrigo Silky Merino.  Made in Uruguay.

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 Silky Merino is produced in dye lots of 10. Any order for more than 10 skeins will be of mixed dye lots.

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:

      Okay, I love this yarn. I ordered two skeins because I am in the process of knitting a scarf for my boyfriend. The only problem I have is that it is so small. I thought it would be a lot bigger and I am disappointed about that. I am planning on ordering 3 more skeins...sigh.

      Bought this to make a cowl as a gift. Needed 2 skeins so I had to knit with both - switched on every row to keep color consistency throughout garment. With that in mind - it's a beautiful yarn! Love the fibers and I do love the color variations throughout.

          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.
