Paradise Fibers Malabrigo Silky Merino Yarn Review

In love with this yarn!

Soft, luminescent, delicious stitch definition. I must order this in all colors!

Sticky for Warp! Beware!

I purchased this a few months ago (quite a bit of it) and just tried it for warp on a rigid heddle loom. It did not perform well, very sticky and stretchy (yes, I did the "warp test" first). The fringe was a total mess of what looked like matted cotton after a gentle wet finish. It's pretty and very soft with a lovely drape, but this is a warning to only use it as weft!

IN LOVE! OMG I am in love with this yarn. The luster is amazing!

I'm so in love with this yarn. In the skein, you can really see the luster. My project calls for wet blocking, so I did a swatch and wet blocked. The yarn performed very well, and the luster of each little stockinette stitch is really lovely. All the "furs," alpaca, mohair, angora, feel itchy to me. Silk and wool is my absolute favorite blend. It's usually expensive, and I feel like Malabrigo is at a better price point than most for this.

Product Details

This delightfully drapey favorite from Malabrigo combines 50% silk and 50% merino into a single-ply DK yarn that is absolutely a treat to knit and a joy to wear. The combination is soft, smooth, and itch-free even on the most sensitive skin- absolutely wonderful for garments, scarves, and other next-to-your-skin items. The silk content gives the yarn a bit more weight and drape than a pure merino, and a slight sheen that is absolutely gorgeous. The fibers take dye a little differently, adding extra depth to the wide selection of semi-solid, variegated, and watercolor-multi colorways available.

  • Weight: DK
  • Yardage: 150yds/50g skein
  • Material: 50% Silk, 50% Merino Wool
  • Gauge: 22.0 to 24.0 sts = 4 inches
  • Needle Size: US 4 - 6 (3.5 - 4mm)
  • Single Ply
  • Hand Wash

Great for: Accessories, shawls, garments, cables, colorwork, textured stitches, lace.

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. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
