When deciding to add a new plant-based yarn to Malabrigo offerings 100% Pima Cotton was the obvious choice. Its softness, strength, and shine are perfect for both warmer weather and those in between times where you just need a little something. Plus, this new yarn was a fun puzzle for us to figure out. Different fiber means different techniques and different dyes, but we had to achieve the same bright, intense malabrigo style colors you expect from us. Knitting year round with malabrigo just got a little bit cooler!
Great for: Accessories, garments, baby and kids items, housewares, toys, cables, textured stitches, color-work.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. 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.
