Malabrigo Sock yarn is a soft, smoothly-plied, lightweight sock yarn in a range of semi-solid and watercolour multi colorways. Spun from our luxurious merino and treated to make it machine washable for easy care. Don’t be fooled by the name- while it’s certainly a treat for the feet, this delightful yarn is also a particular favourite for shawls and scarves! Great for: Lace, shawls, scarves, garments, baby and child items, gloves, and of course socks!
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. In the tagged (*) colours, the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random colour distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
