Finito is a special treat indeed - Malabrigo seeks out the absolute finest Uruguayan merino that they can buy (usually only in limited quantities each year!). The individual fibers are nearly as fine as cashmere, and the finished 2-ply fingering-weight yarn has a downy halo of absolute luxury- truly a joy to knit and wear!
Great for: Shawls, scarves, accessories, lace, textured stitches, lightweight garments, luxurious gifts.
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. 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.
Skeins are hand dyed in small batches of 5 so color variance is normal (even from skein to skein) based on dye lot and monitor/device settings. May not appear exactly as shown.
