Malabrigo Sock


Malabrigo Sock is a fingering-stitch hand-dyed merino wool yarn with a beautiful twist. The yarn is spun from mulesing-free merino and the superwash treatment makes it machine washable and easy to care for. Despite its name, the Malabrigo Sock has no reinforcement, so it may not be the best choice for socks. However, Malabrigo Sock is perfect for scarves, accessories, sweaters and other knitwear.

Due to the hand-dyeing process, each skein is unique, so for larger knits it is best to strip two skeins to even out the colour differences.
