Malabrigo is a family owned yarn company located in Uruguay and they have developed a line of Hand-Dyed yarns of incredible softness and wonderful color variations. Their products are made out of the softest fibers available and inspired by nature, as well as landscapes, places, art and day-to-day life. This is what they try to represent when naming the 18 yarn varieties and the range of over 300 colors they come in. They produce yarn because we are passionate about it. They believe in the pleasure of knitting with good-quality, carefully designed, subtly dyed yarns and in the joy of wearing whatever is made out of them. Their wish is to continue developing yarns and colors to inspire people all over the world, and in return be inspired by them.

Dos Tierras means Two Lands, reflecting the sources of the two amazing fibers found in this ultra-soft yarn. By spinning together 50% of Malabrigo's fine Uruguayan Merino wool with 50% baby alpaca from Peru they have created a DK weight yarn that is as versatile as it is beautiful. And when they combine the good stitch definition and drape of this four ply yarn with their amazing kettle-dyed semi-solid and variegated colors you have the perfect palette to help show off your stitch work.

Great for: Accessories and hand-wash-friendly garments, next-to-skin wear, lace, cables, colorwork, and textured stitches.
