Hand Dyed incredible soft Merino wool. With the subtle variations in color and texture only hand dyed yarns have and all the sensuality of a good handspun yarn.

Malabrigo Worsted is a gorgeous, pure merino wool. Malabrigo is unbelievable - the colors are spectactular, the feel is incredibly soft. You won't believe how amazing Malabrigo is until you feel it!

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

I fully concur with all the previous reviewers, and just add a few lines here on the felting quality of this yarn. Knitting it, initially, you're struck by how soft and pleasant this yarn is, it's beautiful drape, and luxurious feel. I just happened to have this pattern for a felted hat, so I wanted to give it a go, to see if I can figure it out, and if this yarn works well for felting. It took a few rather aggressive rounds in the washer and dryer before the hat had shrunk to its intended size, but what a nice hat it is! The softness of the yarn carried beautifully through, and the colors blended well. There are easier yarns that felt much more willingly, I'm sure, but if you want to add softness and delightful hand-dyed colors to your project, this is where I'd start.

This yarn is incredibly soft but the pilling and shedding was excessive. I returned it after knitting the back of a sweater. This knitted piece almost appeared matted. I have seen pictures of the knitted garments in this wool and the amount of pilling was dramatic so this was not an isolated case. Best use is for felting

    This beautiful, soft yarn from Peru has the feel of being home spun and looks hand dyed, with lovely slight variation in color and thickness of the yarn.

            I have used different Malabrigo yarns over the last few years, and I have not yet met a color that I didn't like. For a person (like me) who is mesmerized by variations and play of colors, this is one of the most beautiful brands to use. Something to keep in mind: a skein you receive will not necessarily match the picture on the site 100%, but in my opinion this is one of the beauties of hand dyed yarn. The yarn is also soft. I love using it for scarves. The scarves come out not just soft, but also wonderfully warm.

              This yarn NEVER disappoints. Knitting a poncho for sister and it has cables. Absolutely stunning and sooooooo soft. It does have a tendency to vary a bit in color so to be on the safe side I am changing skeins every 50 gr. Cannot say enough good things about it.

              This is gorgeous yarn and incredibly soft. I'm making a Celtic cable blanket, and for such a dark color (violetas), the stitch definition is quite good. My biggest concern is that the yarn is spun so unevenly that some stitches look like flaws, especially because the thicker spots also absorbed the dye more deeply and so stand out in the row like a sore thumb. I actually had one 20" stretch that was so thin it could only be called thread, and I had to knit doubled with a normal thickness to use it at all. Maybe this is normal in handspun yarn (this is my first) but I didn't expect the variations to be so extreme. Although I love the feel and the vibrant color, I would only buy this yarn again if the project lent itself to uneven textures.

                  I'm using it doubled to knit the Garter Squish (on Ravelry). It's perfect for this project: colors work well together, knits up quickly and the 'squishy factor' is superb.
