When deciding to add a new plant-based yarn to Malabrigo's 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 Malabrigo to figure out. Different fiber means different techniques and different dyes, but Malabrigo 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 and hand-wash-friendly garments, next-to-skin wear, lace, cables, colorwork, and textured stitches./p>
As with all hand-dyed yarns each skein looks slightly different than the other. Accordingly, skeins shipped will not look exactly like the skeins photographed.
