Over 60 pounds of Malabrigo yarn arrived this week!
This sizable order filled and brightened our cubbies of Rasta, Rios, Mecha, Caracol, and Mechita.
Malabrigo is a beloved Uruguayan yarn company known for vibrant hand-dyed color and soft, squishy merino wool.
These pleasing qualities make their yarns some of the most popular in our shop, so we’re always seeing incredible projects made out of Malabrigo yarn. Here are a few of the latest.
Amy knit this “Rondelay” shawl with Mechita, a single-ply superwash merino wool in fingering weight.
She used one of the coveted speckled colorways, which we can hardly keep in stock – happy to have a nice selection of speckled shades in this recent order!
Margie used one of those speckled skeins of Mechita to make the “Mesh Leaf Cowl” she’s modeling here.
Malabrigo yarns also play well with others, as Linda’s “Mindfulness” shawl demonstrates. She crocheted this beauty using a semi-solid shade in Malabrigo Sock and a highly-variegated skein from Dream in Color’s Pop-Up Skein Club.
Thanks to Amy, Margie, Linda, and countless others who start their projects here at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop – we love to see what you’re working on!
Come by the shop to see our full selection of Malabrigo yarn and get your fill of these soft and colorful skeins!
