      Comments about Malabrigo Sock:

      I found a pattern that is for a sock yarn shawl. I picked this yarn to do the section of colored lace. The colors are very pretty and the stitching stands out nicely. The yarn was nicely presented and it was easy to unwind the skein (which I find important). I am looking forward to finishing up the project so I can wear the light summery shawl.

        I am knitting a Lucy Hague-designed blanket made up of many squares with Celtic cables. This yarn has such gorgeous, almost antique-looking colours, which blend together beautifully. It is so soft and a joy to knit with!

          Comments about Malabrigo Sock:

          Malabrigo sock is a great kettle dyed yarn in Malabrigo's stunning colorways, but the sock is a great workhorse yarn too. I have had terrible pilling with Mal. lace (not Silkpaca) but the sock is sturdy and doesn't pill (so far). It makes nice long-wearing shawls and sweaters. I have made lace crochet cardis and shawls with it.

          Recently Malabrigo seems to have tightened their twist in the yarn, and it's not quite as mushy soft as their older base. I happen to like the older base better because that looser twist looks better in lace crochet. But Malabrigo's colors can't be beat, and it's certainly cheaper than other hand-dyed luxury yarns so I can buy it in big quantities for large crochet garments which suck a lot more yarn than knitting! I always have to remember, though, that their dyelot batches differ HUGELY.

              Comments about Malabrigo Sock:

              I recently began knitting socks, after finishing many other kinds of knitted items. This yarn is good for a beginner. It's easy to distinguish individual stitches and easy to fix a mistake from the row below. My only complaint about this yarn at all would be that I was knitting two socks at once (from two skeins) and I didn't realize at first that the two skeins I bought were slightly different in shade, even though they were of the same dye lot. Otherwise, the yarn is really nice.

                I had no idea Yarn could be like this! It is near prefect! Yes the dye varies from skein to skein....but if you alternate using a couple of different skeins...it is not an issue...it is part of the beautiful dye they use.
                This is so soft...knits like a dream...has a nice drape to it....I cant say enough!

                      I had knit socks with this yarn (same colour: Boticelli Red) and loved it. I purchased more to make a Maple Leaf shaped shawl and another pair of socks. The tonal dye is beautiful without being overpowering. It blocks beautifully. It wears well. It has a great hand.
