Soft, strong, and washable, this 4-ply yarn is a workhorse. The plies help resist pilling and washability makes it fantastic for frequently-worn garments, housewares, and children and baby clothes. And like all Malabrigo yarns, it’s super soft and great for next-to-the-skin wear. Spun from premium superwash merino, it comes in an array of watercolor-multi, semi-solid, and variegated colorways.
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.
Skeins are hand dyed in small batches of five or ten so color variance is normal (even from skein to skein) based on dye lot and monitor/device settings. May not appear exactly as shown.
