Soft and cozy, Malabrigo Mecha is 100% superwash wool. Mecha means "single ply" in Uruguayan Spanish and this bulky weight yarn is one strand of gently twisted wool with a light halo and oodles of color. Mecha is saturated in Malabrigo's signature deep, rich tones. Imagine this sumptuous, squishy wool worked up into a favorite sweater or stunning accessories, all so easy to care for! 

Note: As with all hand-dyed yarns, colors may vary significantly from skein to skein, even within the same dye lot. The yarn color you receive may look different from the color pictured below. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

Please note: Malabrigo Mecha is produced in dye lots of 10. Any order for more than 10 hanks will be of mixed dye lots. Some colors do not have any dye lots.

I love this yarn..chunky, quick knit..knitted scarf frogged and knitted again over a period of four nights. The best thing about this yarn is its SOFTNESS & WARMTH...heaven!! With the polar vortex passing over the Northeast..my scarf has become my constant companion - it's lightweight, soft and so very, very warm.
My biggest frustration is the freaking colors...my colors varied from the pics; they are supposedly produced in dye lots of 10...my orders were from same dye lot - Made a scarf from Candombe and frogged because the last of 3 hanks was so different from the other two (moved it to the middle). I just received the Arco Iris and it is not what I expected...BUT...the warmth makes it forgivable..

I've been a huge fan of Malabrigo yarns. My husband's favorite hat was made last year from Mecha yarn. So this year (2014) I splurged on a number of skeins in different colorways. My intended use was one skein moebius scarves for sale and gifts. The skeins looked different out of the package. I hand ball them so I noticed that there was an unexpected "thick/thin" charateristic to the yarn. And the thin parts are compacted and rough. Then the knots showed up. I hate knots and think they're a major ding to customers. Especially when they show up in order to add a random small poorly spun stretch of yarn at the end to fill their yardage - grrrr....! Not one skein, but all of them! Which means I have to rethink how I'll use these yarns. Coasters? yikes! So one star for good price. One star for great color. That's it. I'll pay extra and stick with Madelinetosh.

          I waited patiently for the color Arapey since December 2016, which paid off. The luscious colors are spring perfect. 20 skeins will make one happy blanket.

                      This yarn is so soft, does not split, and glides on my hook. My only complaint: some photo colors and yarn in person look very different. (Piedras arrived as orange and green - not ok. I should have returned and did not.)
