Malabrigo Dos Tierras is HERE!

by Tye February 22, 2017

Malabrigo has done it again!  The name of their newest line, Dos Tierras means Two lands in honor of the sources of the two amazing fibers that are found in this ultra-soft yarn.  This DK weight yarn is as versatile as it is beautiful.  Malabrigo decided to marry two amazing fibers together by spinning 50% fine Uruguayan Merino wool with 50% baby alpaca from Peru.  Your work will shine when you knit with this four-ply yarn that provides great stitch definition and drape.  Dos Tierras is available in the amazing kettle-dyed semi-solid and variegated colors you have come to know and love Malabrigo for creating.  Perfect for creating accessories in all types of knit stitches from lace to cables, colorwork, and everything in between!  You are going to love the next to skin wearability of this amazing new yarn.  What will you knit with this new line? Share it with us in the comment section below.
