To add to the numerous threads of mmmmMalabrigo...here's one more.

I ran across what I can only assume is a new collection (http://www.malabrigoyarn.com/yarn/seleccionprivada.html) of Malabrigo and wondered if anyone here had knit with it. It is selling for $16.00 on yarn.com. However, a San Fran shop has it for $10.50 on their online store.

I've ordered two skeins of the Cadmium, Holly Hock, and Sapphire Green colorway since my knit2purl2 order died an untimely death.

I will let you know how it turns out and post pics when I receive the yummy stuff. :woot:

Update 8/20/07

I received my two skeins of mmmmMalabrigo Seleccion Privada from Imagiknits today. They are just as soft as the worsted mmmmMalabrigo and are such vibrant colors. I don't know what they want to be yet. I'm thinking maybe a scarf and hat set? I wanted to do Silver's reversible IHS, but I think the yarn is too thick.

Without further ado, here is a photo:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v43/KateNPC/S6300113.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v43/KateNPC/MalabrigoSP.jpg

Oops! www.imagiknit.com (http://www.imagiknit.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=I&Category_Code=malabrigoSP)The site isn't particularly user-friendly, but it's manageable. What do you think you'll order?

I'm not sure yet. Hopefully they will have some colorways that I like. I most likely will ordere more of the worsted weight & maybe 1 skein of the seleccion privada just to see how it feels...

I'm hoping it feels just like the regular Malabrigo--just dyed with a different mix of colors. Here's hoping!! :yay:

It isn't new.... it has been around as long as I have been using malabrigo. It is actually what caught my eye first, and then the other colors and the feel..lol. It is exactly like the standard malabrigo in feel though i believe it is a yard or two shorter (i may be making that up... i am a little stuffly tonight and not thinking clearly...lol) but the colors are VERY fun. They always name them by Letter instead of color names like the other ones. I always think that color y looks like mardi gras! :thumbsup:

This is a really bad picture of a feather and fan scarf done in that autumnal colorway.

Wow! That scarf is beautiful--so autumny!

I thought the collection was new as I hadn't seen it before, but it looks like I was wrong! A first time for everything I suppose. :roflhard:

The colors look very much like tie dye, so if I end up liking what I've ordered tonight, then I'm sure I'll re-order with the pinks and purples.

Thanks for your input, Brendajos! :cheering:

ETA-- I just checked and the colorway I ordered is "Y"! And you're right, it does look like Mardi Gras!
