The complexity of color and the softness of Malabrigo Mechita is simply stunning. Mechita is the fingering weight version of Malabrigo's bulky Mecha. It's a single-ply, 100% superwash merino wool yarn that's hand-dyed in colors you really won't believe until you see them for yourself. This machine washable yarn would make extraordinary garments and accessories. 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.

Note: this yarn is dyed in lots of 5. If you order more than 5, you WILL have mixed lots.

        Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mechita:

        I'm planning to use this for socks, but it would also be good for light weight shawls and sweaters. I think the softness would be great next to the skin.

        Lovely Mechita Yarn from Malabrigo...

        By ninzoct

        from CT

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mechita:

        My only problem is that the colorways often don't match the online photographs at all...far from it.

        Other than that, the yarn is appropriate for anything you knit...although I don't think socks would wear that well. It's a spectacular yarn....just spectacular.

        • Soft

        Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mechita:

        Lovely, soft yarn that feels great to knit with.

        Even with the caveat on the Mechita page about "color variations", my skein is predominantly mud-colored. It is so far from how the colorway is described, if I were Malabrigo, I wouldn't have marked this skein forward unsellable. Have some pride in your product, Malabrigo!

        If I ever want to work with this yarn again, I'll go to a bricks-and-mortar store and PICK OUT the skein I want.

        from Glendale, AZ

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Beautiful colors
        • Great stitch definition
        • Knits Up Fast
        • Rips And Reknits As New
        • Soft
        • Washable

        Cons

        • Slippery

        Best Uses

        • Shawl
        • Sweater

        Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mechita:

        I am amazed with this yarn. It does not look as smooth as other washable yarns but, the colors were so fanastic, I just had to try it. What a surprise. The stitch definition is the best I've ever had. I had to rip out a few rows and it knitted back up perfectly. It is quite slippery, however, and I had to change from nickle needles to Karbonz, which was perfect. I am making a shawl and I can hardly wait to finish it.

          Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mechita:

          Delivery came so fast it was amazing. Thank you. I have waited at least a year for Malabrigo to make these COLORS available again. Hope they can stay in stock. Ordered 4 colors. Only Archangel was a not as the photo on web-site showed with dark purple being spotty making it less outstanding as a contrast. 3 others are perfect. Just yummy. Love the feel. It worked up well on 3 sizes of needles - all I've tried so far 2-3-4
