Spinners asked, and Malabrigo delivered. Ultra-soft merino is now available as unspun top, in a selection of their most beloved colorways. It is truly a joy to spin, full of fluff and loft and unmatched softness! Of course, you can also knit with the roving itself for a uniquely fluffy effect, or use it for thrums or needle felting.

Lovely to spin

I am a novice spinner. I found this hand dyed roving lovely to spin. As it is hand dyed there was a little flatness to the braid. To the people stating it was felted, I find it necessary to inform everyone that fine, softer wools (merinos) take much more dye for the wool to take the color. I didn't have difficulty teasing it out for spinning.

Malabrigo roving

I love the colors and the finished softness of yarn spun from the roving. The braid can be a bit difficult to separate, but it’s worth the work. Colors never the same, but always wonderful.

Great colorways

I have purchased Nube Braids many times. Their color blends can be used in a variety of ways to spin original yarns and truly interesting effects can be created when felting by layering or placement of the different colors in the braid . This also eliminates the need to buy large quantities of wool to design with multiple colors.

Malabrigo Nube Fiber Braids

I wanted too make two ply lace weight yarn with the two braids using a fractal spin method. The Merino is beautiful. However the braids are slightly felted on the outside making that part tough to draft. The fiber may have been over cooked in the dye pot as there are some patches of brittle fiber. I will get my lace weight yarn but there more waste fiber than I get from other Merino products.
