Malabrigo Chunky

Malabrigo Chunky is everything we love about our original Malabrigo worsted -- beautiful colors in a supersoft 100% merino -- and more. Malabrigo Chunky is a chunky three-ply yarn that will make a sturdier fabric perfect for heavier sweaters and super-warm winter accessories.

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

I knitted the State Street Cowl with this yarn (actually.... I knitted 7 of them... for Christmas gifts!) It was a fantastic choice for yarn as it's very soft, squishy, and warm! I have gotten so many compliments on the cowls! The Malabrigo chunky yarn is dyed so beautifully and comes in a nice range of colors. It also feels amazing to knit with (which is a must!) *FYI - For anyone making this cowl w/ Malabrigo chunky: I had to knit fewer rows of ribbing because there wasn't enough yarn to do the complete pattern. It still looks amazing!

            I used it to knit cowls for all my men for Christmas. The colors are great, and the warmth will work well for them.

            More flattering on thin figures

            • Tangled Within Skein

            Best Uses

            • Gloves
            • Hats
            • Scarves

            Comments about Malabrigo Chunky:

            Yarn arrives in skeins that must be wound into balls. About 25% of skeins have tangles inside them, making the winding process go too slowly.

            This weight yarn is more flattering to the thin figure unless it is in a hat or gloves. Neck warmer or scarf adds to the weight around the neck on a more rounded figure.

            Color range is beautiful.

                        I purchased two skeins of this in different colors to knit some hats for Christmas. They knit up fast and easy. Both were super warm too. I would use this again.
