Spinners asked, and Malabrigo delivered. Ultra-soft merino is now available as unspun top, in a selection of their most beloved colorways. It is truly a joy to spin, full of fluff and loft and unmatched softness! Of course, you can also knit with the roving itself for a uniquely fluffy effect, or use it for thrums or needle felting.
I am a novice spinner. I found this hand dyed roving lovely to spin. As it is hand dyed there was a little flatness to the braid. To the people stating it was felted, I find it necessary to inform everyone that fine, softer wools (merinos) take much more dye for the wool to take the color. I didn't have difficulty teasing it out for spinning.
I have purchased Nube Braids many times. Their color blends can be used in a variety of ways to spin original yarns and truly interesting effects can be created when felting by layering or placement of the different colors in the braid . This also eliminates the need to buy large quantities of wool to design with multiple colors.
I have wanted to find this particular yarn in the ‘right’ size...should have known it’s always better to just spin it and make it myself. I love the colors and it makes me so happy to work it. I’ll spin Malabrigo Nube ALL DAY LONG!!!!
Lovely color and nice to spin.
