Malabrigo

Malabrigo is a family run company located in Uruguay using wool from throughout South America.

They work closely with a woman’s cooperative to produce a range of striking hand painted yarns. Due to this, all skeins are unique so I would recommend alternating skeins in larger projects.

Blend
70% baby alpaca 30% silk
Yarn Weight
Lace
Length
384m / 420yds

Spun with silk from China and alpaca from Peru, Silkpaca is a lace weight yarn that makes the most of these two luxury fibres.

It has a stunning sheen, softness and drape making it perfect for luxury accessories.

The colours are gently tonal due to the different take up of the dye by the different fibres.

Lace

Malabrigo Lace is spun from the finest merino wool farmed in the north of Uruguay where the climate is perfect for this breed of sheep.

The yarn has a beautiful drape and is a delight to knit with. It comes in a range of striking hand dyed shades.

From the Spanish for river, Rios is named after the 4 major rivers in Uruguay, each representing a ply in the finished yarn. This tightly plied construction gives fabulous stitch definition.

The merino wool makes it super soft and as it is superwash, it also washes well making it perfect for luxury baby garments.

Roving

Nube is Malabrigo’s roving and is perfect for spinning and felting. Nube means cloud in Spanish and is a good description of this hand dyed fibre.
