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! 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!
Malabrigo no longer provides Dye Lots on Multicolor Yarns, but visually matches skeins in bags of 10. We check the match as we ship, but they do vary - if you order MORE than 10, we'll do our best to ensure that the skeins are a good match - but they are HAND DYED and will vary. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

As with all artisan hand dyed yarns, be sure to order enough to complete your project - for multicolors, Malabrigo no longer does dye lots, so its critical to order enough so that we can match your skeins visually prior to shipping. Skeins vary within the bag, but are generally a good match. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
What is merino yarn?
Merino wool yarn is a yarn spun from the fleece of the merino sheep. Merinos are regarded as having the finest and softest wool of any sheep.
The term merino is widely used in the textile industries with varied meanings. Originally it denoted the wool of Merino sheep reared in Spain, but due to the equivalent quality of wool spun from merino in many other countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Uruguay and Peru, the term Merino wool now has broader use. In the dress-goods and knitting trades the term "Merino" means an article containing Merino wool.
Merino wool is finely crimped and soft. Basic Merino types include: strong (broad) wool 23 - 24.5 micron(µm), medium wool is 19.6 - 22.9 µm, fine 18.6 - 19.5 µm, superfine 15 - 18.5 µm and ultra fine 11.5 - 15 µm. Ultra fine wool is suitable for blending with other fibres such as silk and cashmere. Staples are commonly 65 mm (2.5 inches) to 100 mm (4 inches) long. Merino wool is generally less than 24 µm in diameter.
