This is it, the original Worsted that made Malabrigo an international favorite! A buttery-soft single ply of fine Uruguayan Merino wool, this yarn has excellent stitch definition, comes in an enormous rainbow of colors (solids, semisolid, and variegated) and is deliciously squishy and cozy. It’s also fantastic for felting projects! Like all Malabrigo yarns, It is kettle-dyed in small batches by artisan dyers.
Great for: Accessories and hand-wash-friendly garments, next-to-skin wear, cables, textured stitches, color-work, felting, anything where warmth and comfort are a factor!
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. 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.
The same dye formula is used each time but every batch of yarn is assigned a different dye lot number. The differences from one dye lot to another can be very subtle, or extremely noticeable, especially on variegated yarns.
The colors shown on photos are illustrated as reference, as mentioned above, they can differ on more or less of one tone, due to the hand-dyed process. We are happy to send you a picture of actual yarn we have in stock so you can get a better idea of the colors we have in stock. Just send us an email. :)
Pattern shown is Sunray by Ulli Schrober, free on Ravelry. We used one skein for this short neck warmer. Use two skeins for a longer scarf that can wrap.
