This is it, the original Worsted that made Malabrigo an international favorite! A buttery-soft single ply of fine Uruguayan Merino wool, this yarn has excellent stitch definition, comes in an enormous rainbow of colors (solids, semisolids, and variegateds) and is deliciously squishy and cozy. It’s also fantastic for felting projects! Like all Malabrigo yarns, it is kettle-dyed in small batches by artisan dyers and is full of subtle variation and beauty.
Approximately 210 yards/100 gram ball, 4-5 stitches per inch on a US 7-9 needle.
Great for: Accessories and hand-wash-friendly garments, next-to-skin wear, cables, textured stitches, colorwork, felting, anything where warmth and comfort are a factor!
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. In the tagged (*) colors, the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

This is a gorgeous soft yarn. Just take care when ordering to remember that computer screens can give you a slightly wrong idea of the color. I thought I bought a gorgeous fushia-orangey color. It's definitely more of a reddish-orange. The wrong color for my original project, but it's so soft I'm going to make something else with it that takes advantage of the color.
Love this yarn, I always have. This was a great sale on a workhorse luxury yarn. Since it was a big sale the color choices were very limited, but that was no surprise. I did order multiple skeins and they are very far apart as far as being similar within a colorway. I don't blame Paradise, but always wish there would be great effort made to find and group similar skeins in an order with such vendors as Malabrigo.
Felting nesting bowls with this yarn... Beautiful
Great yarn for felting
Knitting with singles is a bit different. The yarn has thin and thick parts to it, which worried me when winding, but do not really show in the finished garment. I love the color variations in the semi-solids, as they give great character to the finished item. The pricing for this yarn is extremely reasonable for the quality, and I will definitely use it again.
