handpaintedyarn.com has other yarns by them - they don't have the worsted weight, which is what the malabringo is, but they have a yummy bulky merino....................

other than that, WEBS has it, I believe. It is scrumptious yarn thats for shore!

I ordered some from 2 places. www.knit2purl2.com was GREAT. Very quick delivery and good choice of colors.

www.yarn.com was also wonderful and had a decent selection of colors. And if you order at least $60, you get a discount. :D

I also ordered from an eBay seller, I'll have to go back and check who it was.

I just knitted my daughter some longies in the Malabrigo. I am in LOVE!!!!

It's gorgeous, though I can't speak yet for its pilling qualities. Have fun! The colorways are just unbelievable!

Hm, that's funny at Yarn.com they say Malabrigo is better than Manos del Uruguay, the yarn I am thinking of buying for my Einstein coat.
Not many people seem to have Manos either.

Malabrigo is sooooo much softer than Manos -- IMHO there is absolutely no comparison.

On the Yahoo yarn co-op group we just had a co-op for a yarn that is supposed to be as soft as Malabrigo...another Uruguayan cooperative...I think mine is going to come in the mail tomorrow. I'm hoping it's true because the price was soooo good and the colors are gorgeous.

Thanks for the tip Julie... I think I actually want Manos for its being heavier for the Einstein coat I might make if I can get around to affording it....
so what's with the coop on Yahoo? I guess I could check it out huh?

Oh my goodness, I just have to share -- my wool just arrived from the co-op and it is fabulous. It really is as soft as Malabrigo...especially the undyed skeins that I got. It's a little different, I'd say not as loosely spun or something, as it seems a little lighter weight, though it is worsted weight. I can't wait to swatch it!!!

The seller is 100purewool -- through the co-op it was considerably cheaper and the shipping charges were much less than if you buy directly from them on eBay. I am SO hoping that the co-op will be repeated!!!

Off to blog about my yarn now....
