2 malabrigo questions - color and pilling
hi!

anyone make anything out of their lime blue colorway? I'm curious how the colors splash. I'm sure I would do the changing hanks every 2 rows, but outside of that... I'd love to see a swatch or something.

second thing, I have only been using malabrigo a short time and nothing really wearable that needs lots of washing, so i haven't experienced much pilling, but i read a comment somewhere that said it's pretty bad in that department... so bad a sweater is a bad idea? that's the million dollar question.

thanks! hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

Well I am not sure how helpful this will be as I don't know what pattern they use to dye the lime blue but here is how the Curacao knitted up.




I haven't had any issues really with pilling but i haven't knitted anything to be worn but for those. and those haven't been worn enough yet to pill
