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 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.
