Please note - Malabrigo Merino Special orders can take from 1 week to 10 days if the color is currently in stock at Malabrigo. If it is not, it can take up to 6 weeks and more, so please let us know if you do not want to wait at checkout. You may also email us or jump on chat and let us know what color you are looking for, and we can check prior to your placing your order whether it is available at Malabrigo! We try and keep all of malabrigos colors in stock, but it is a constantly changing situation!
As with all artisan hand dyed yarns, be sure to order enough to complete your project as each bag is a different dye lot, and on some colors skeins may vary from bag to bag. The 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.
This yarn made in limited quantities—we order whenever it becomes available! If there is a color you are looking for, and it's not listed here, please email or chat with us and we can check whether it is available to order for you. Special Orders are a minimum of 10.
PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF RESHOOTING ALL THE MERINO COLORS. If there is a quantity, but no swatch, it means it is being photographed, and will be updated soon, but it is in stock.

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.
