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.

Note: As a hand-dyed yarn, Malabrigo can vary from skein to skein within a dye lot (and even from the picture displayed above!); different dye lots can vary enough to seem like different colorways. It's important to purchase enough yarn for your project from a single dye lot; alternating skeins every couple of row as you knit or crochet is advisable to blend skeins visually in the finished garment.
