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! Made in Peru.

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

              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.)

                  I loved working with this yarn. I made a hoodie for my nephew (see pic attached). The yarn was a dream to work with and very soft. It lays nicely. I think it would make into a nice sweater or scarf as well. I would definitely use this yarn again. It did not split. I did not realize it at the time of purchase but the yarn is machine washable (cold water). Dry flat. I am in a weekly knitting group and many people in the group commented on the yarn as I was working with it, saying how much they liked it. The color (Paris Night) is beautiful.
