Malabrigo was nice enough to send me a BAG of their newest color Garden Gate to review and do a giveaway. This yarn inspired me to design this.
It´s a Collared Cabled Cowl and a really nice quick knit. I plan on selling it both on Ravelry and on my site here.
Knitting with this yarn is just amazing. I love how the 100% merino wool feels on my fingers and needles. It is just sooooooo soft. The color is very pretty and a great fall color to keep warm with. I´m looking forward to using this cowl under my wool pea coat. The pattern is knitted with the yarn tripled using the Navajo method where you only need one skein and one strand and you triple it. I will post a video on how this is done as soon as I have the pattern ready to sell on Saturday. This yarn turned out so well tripled with it´s amazing colors coming together. It also worked up really fast on size 15 needles.
While doing my research on Malabrigo yarn on their site I realized how much I have been missing out on. I have only tried their worsted weight 100% merino a lace weight. I had never tried their sock yarn or any of those yummy yarns. They also just started a Super Bulky yarn called Rasta.
Their sock yarn looks pretty nice as well.
There are so many amazing earth tones which I really love in all the different types of Malabrigo yarn. Now I´m just hoping that Malabrigo Yarns will keep me in mind when they are introducing new yarns. I just LOVE this stuff.
Tobias at Malabrigo was nice enough to answer some questions for me about how Malabrigo Yarns got their start and what is to come.
How did Malabrigo Yarn get it’s start? Who are the masterminds behind this amazing yarn?
Antonio is the mastermind, or dyer Supremo!
Why Uruguayan sheep?
