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!
I am using it to make a nuno felted vest. It is going very well. It felts so easily and pretty quickly.
The colors are beautiful and thy spin really smooth. End result is very soft and the colors blend well together.
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!
love it even more on sale :-) Always good material
