Soft, luminescent, delicious stitch definition. I must order this in all colors!
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!
Haven't used it yet, but really looking forward to it, it feels so wonderful in the hand.
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.
beautiful colors, beautiful yarn. always pleased with malabrigo!
