Wonderful fiber and colorways

This fiber spun as beautifully as it did the last two times I purchased it. Love the color ways and will purchase more.

Beautiful colors, minor fiber issues

This review is for the Whale's Road color way. The colors are GORGEOUS. Overall, I had a good experience spinning this fiber. I made a 2-ply yarn and attached beads by plying them on cotton thread. Here are a few notes: - The fibers are moderately compacted in the braid, probably due to the dyeing process. I had to separate them a bit before spinning. - There are quite a few tiny felted bits. I just picked them out as I spun. - I found that this fiber wanted to be spun really fine!

Malabrigo Nube Fiber Braids

I am using it to make a nuno felted vest. It is going very well. It felts so easily and pretty quickly.

Beautiful fiber but you spend more time predrafting than spinning

I was attracted to Malabrigo Nube - it's priced well and beautiful. Malabrigo has nice yarns, so why not? But after working with it, never again. The fiber braid is compact. I spent most of the time generously predrafting this fiber, and you need to do it as it is so compact with felted spots. It is soft and fluffy once predrafted and spun, but it has taken me much longer to finish than usual. Buy at your own risk!

Product Details

Malabrigo Nubes are 4oz braids of ultra-soft hand-dyed unspun merino top perfect for felters, spinners, and knitters alike. Available in selection of their most beloved vibrant colorways, these Nubes (spanish for cloud) are lofty, squishy, and dreamy. It is truly a joy to spin, full of fluff and unmatched softness! You can also knit with the roving itself for a uniquely fluffy effect, or use it for thrums or needle felting.

Colors may vary between braids and dye lots.  When planning a project requiring more than one braid allow for nuances. Being as this fiber is hand-dyed, each braid can vary in color, even in the same dyelot.
