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.
Malabrigo Chunky: One of Malabrigo's classics! They took their Merino Worsted, fattened it up, and plied it to create this squooshy treat of a yarn! Chunky’s nice smooth texture and semi-solid colors make it perfect for bulky cables and bold textures - or choose a variegated colorway and let the colors do the work!
