I have a wonderful announcement to make: As part of expanding our Malabrigo selection, we now stock Malabrigo Lace Yarn! This is a beautiful, delicate, singles lace weight merino wool that is worthy of being fawned over. I’ll be honest, I am always partial to single ply yarns. I love how buttery they are, how they knit up, and really just how they look in general. Not to mention, they show off fancy dye jobs in the loveliest way. So it only makes sense that this biased knitter would gravitate toward Malabrigo Lace. Weavers are in on this too – you’ll find that with 470 yards to a skein and a very even twist, especially for a singles, this yarn open up new possibilities for weaving with merino in a gorgeous palette. Want a closer look? Check out my video review:
This yarn really shows off the beautifully variegated colors that Malabrigo is known for, despite its diminutive weight. We have a mixed selection of multicolors and tonal solids here at the shop; I again have to be honest and tell you I especially love this yarn in tonal solids. I never really care for purple, but every time I walk by the display I get sucked in by our color 0340, Orchid. There’s just something about the subtlety of the color that I really enjoy.
Lace is a much lighter version of Malabrigo Worsted, which has been a shop favorite for years. Since most of you are probably already familiar with how great Malabrigo is, let me hush up already and show you some things you can make with this particular yarn….
First and foremost, the Knitbot Featherweight Cardigan. This is on my to-do list. Hannah Fettig’s patterns are a joy to follow- well written, well designed, and fun to knit. I know people who have made this particular cardigan multiple times, just so they can have one in every color. It’s also available for the kiddo’s – Knitbot Fledgling Featherweight Cardigan.
If you’re more of a shawl person, there’s also this book: Sock - Yarn Shawls. This book has a bunch of different shawl patterns, and you can use Malabrigo Lace for all of ’em.
Whether you’re inspired by a certain color or have a hankering for a certain finished project, this yarn has a lot to offer. Catch Malabrigo Lace on sale for 10% off – now through next Wednesday!
