That Mmmmmalabrigo is bee-you-tee-full!!

Knitwit, Mmmmalabrigo is incredibly soft, has gorgeous colors & knits up well. I've got another 5 skeins in my stash that I periodically fondle.

I wondered exactly the same thing before I actually saw it and touched it in the shop. It's just... magnificent. It's soft and smooth and comes in stunning colors. And it's knitting up beautifully (making a small hat with some cables, very pretty so far, with the blue).

I've seen it for about $12/hank on up. Sometimes you can find it online on sale. I've never bought more than 3 at a time, & have used it for scarves & hats. I know others have made bigger things.

The kind I showed in the pic was $10.95 (it's fairly chunky) -- there was a chunkier one that was about $14. For it's loveliness, not too bad. I wouldn't buy it all the time because I'm generally a cheapskate, but once in awhile for sure.

Thanks for the info! It sounds absolutely gorgeous! But I usually try to stear clear of high priced yarns... also, I went on malabrigo's website and they dont sell it in any stores in kansas. i know i could just buy it off the internet, but my parents said i'm not allowed. lol i guess i will have to stick to michaels and my lys!

I once made a Malabrigo sweater. Cost me a BUNDLE to do, but it was worth it. It is a GREAT yarn! :P

You could check with your LYS and see if they will special order it for you.
