Malabrigo chunky yarn is a fabulous product. I have been knitting with it for many years. Very soft, wonderful Merino wool yarn I use for afghans, scarves and cowls. This yarn is available in lovely colors and knits up beautifully.
I ordered this yarn in Pearl to do the 2x2 Cowl from Tin Can Knits. It worked up beautifully, and I even had extra yarn to add additional rows since I like my cowls a little longer! No splitting or fuzzing, and it was so soft after blocking.
Mostly good. However, have you noticed knots in Mal hanks lately? One of my Hanks had a knot only about ten yards in. That really disappoints me. I mean, I but mill ends and they contain knots ... But a standard Hank should not. Even Noro is doing it...and they don't even bother to match the join.
I have used Malabrigo Chunky to knit up a throw before and am doing it again with this new color. It is delightfully soft and warm!
