Malabrigo Twist

Malabrigo Twist is a fabulously soft, plied, worsted weight yarn. You love Malabrigo for the softness and stunning colors, and now it's available in a plied version. You must feel and knit with this incredible yarn!

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

Comments about Malabrigo Twist:

Bought 8 skeins to make 4 color worked word hats (okay, so I probably only need half of that but... I rarely UNDER buy). Knocked one out already and I'm half way through the second. I test wore the first hat for a couple days before washing/blocking/preparing to gift it and am happy with the yarn. Soft enough to be on my sensitive forehead without me thinking about it. Nice for my intended purpose, but a bit thick for my usual preference. Probably will not buy again but will try thinner Malabringo yarns.

      I have make a sweater called Lemongrass, designed by Joji Locatelli. I'm happy with my choice of yarn, originally was going to use something else, but it wasn't soft enough for my liking.

                I used this yarn to make both gauntlets and a shrug. It is SO soft I can recommend it to my friends who normally don't like wool because of scratchiness. This is not scratchy at all. It is super soft and the colors (I have many) are gorgeous.

                Comments about Malabrigo Twist:

                This yarn is perfect for the hat I'm making, very soft and easy to work with. Unfortunately, there are a few weird spots of color patchiness. Also, I bought the burgundy shade, which is not even close to burgundy, but more like a dark rust. It's pretty, but not at all what I was hoping for. I love the yarn though...very nice quality and softer than the Malabrigo yarns I've tried in the past.

                Comments about Malabrigo Twist:

                This light and soft yarn will generate a coat of fuzzy texture if you have to pull out a lot of rows over and over! Probably would felt well. Tip: work out a pattern problem on some scrap yarn. The sweater I am making is like a plump teddybear in my lap. Very plush and cosy. Shows stitch definition fairly well. Use rounded-tip needles as it will occasionally split. Not as tightly spun as some yarns. If you knit loosely, use a smaller needle since it has some especially slender areas. US 8 works well for even stitches that wiggle in closely together. Does not shed or pill. NOT scratchy! Pearl 10 had some dye lots that were pretty out there so look out for colour variance. Slightly heavier than usual worsted weight yarn, use best in thicker yarn applications.

                Service and delivery comments:

                I purchased in more than one order. Do not recall any problems.
