Malabrigo Lace

If you enjoy lace knitting, you've got to try Malabrigo Lace, a gorgeous, pure merino wool. Spun from the finest merino wool, this yarn comes from sheep bred for generations by ranchers in the northern part of Uruguay, where the ideal climate for this breed is found. When you experience Malabrigo Lace, you connect with a special place of the world. The colors are spectactular, the feel of the yarn is incredibly soft. You won't believe how amazing it is until you feel it! One hank is all you need to make a great scarf.

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 Lace is produced in dye lots of 5. Any order for more than 5 skeins will be of mixed dye lots.

This was my first Malabrigo and my first lace-weight yarn - and it has completely raised my standards. It's soft and luxurious without being overbearing or itchy - and best of all, it's actually warm! And by far, Malabrigo has some of the best colors around, for the absolute best price. It's wonderful.

Easily the most disappointing yarn I have worked with. Ever. Yes, it is incredibly soft. If this is the only criterion to you, go with it but: The first of my skeins had 7 knots, the second 16. There were multiple areas where the yarn was not spun even (uneven as in changes from lace weight to almost bulky!), which was contrasted by extremely thin areas. The shawl that I made with it looks as it was attacked by moths! To add to the list of wonderful attributes, the yarn is extremely sticky which makes winding a real treat. I highly recommend this yarn for people looking for a quick felting project as it is readily doing so while knitted. No, I do not suffer from 'hot' hands.

      Comments about Malabrigo Lace:

      This lace is great to make a beautiful large scarf or small wrap that's lightweight but easy to carry, for a 'just-in-case' chill in the air. Malabrigo is always a pleasure to work with.

          Comments about Malabrigo Lace:

          This is very nice quality yarn. It feels nice and I think would be nice to crochet or knit with. However, it looks nothing like the picture. I know there are no dye lots on some of these yarns and I expected there to be some variation, but I was convinced that I had received the wrong yarns! This has been true with many of the different types of yarns I've ordered from WEBS. If the product varies so much, why use pictures at all? They are only misleading.

              Comments about Malabrigo Lace:

              Only concern with the product is that it was twisted pretty tightly and i am having a difficult time winding the yarn since every strand is stuck to every other strand in it's reach. I don't know if the situationwould be aided by using a swift.

              Service and delivery comments:

              It would be lovely if you offered winding service for yarns like this that are known tobe sticky.

              I'm using this wool to make a cowl for a friend -- I've started next year's Christmas present list. This wool will be soft and warm and will drape beautifully. I'm enjoying working with it and will definitely use it again.

              BEAUTIFUL!!!

                  Comments about Malabrigo Lace:

                  Impossible to wind into a ball without breaking it several times. Much of it was wasted in a tangled mess that couldn't be rectified. I was quite disgusted with the product and will not buy Malabrigo Lace again, I assure you.

                  beautiful colors but very thin yarn

                  Comments about Malabrigo Lace:

                  This is beautiful yarn but extremely thin. I used crochet hook H for a scarf and don't think it would look good with a larger size. I really liked the 470 yards, though, and understand why it's called "Lace" - it's probably intended for lacework, not scarves. I'm still learning . . .

                    One skein makes a beautiful cowl. The colors are vibrant and it is a pleasure to knit with this yarn. I have made cowls for friends using many of the colors and adding beads. Each one was prettier than the last.
