This is a wonderful lavender with a lot of red in it - to us, periwinkle is more blue - but either way, it is a stunning solid merino laceweight yarn - perfect for lace patterns, like the citron scarf from knitty, or just a simple stockinette shawl.
Malabrigo Yarns kettle dyed and handpainted yarns are made by a small, family-owned company in Uruguay. They work with a womans cooperative to create wonderfully organic looking, funky and beautiful yarns. This is one of our favorites: Gruesa - a thick and thin super-bulky yarn in amazing colors. Great for knitting up a fast hat or a great, fun, bulky sweater, this yarn is also a great felting yarn.
