In search of some malabrigo
Hi..I would like to purchase of a hank of Calypso malabrigo worsted weight yarn. I had one hank and started a scarf....the scarf is not as long as I would like. I am hoping someone has a lonely hank of Claypso in their stash they would like to part with. I don't think that colorway is made anymore.....

Or if someone knows of a yarn store that still has the colorway Calypso...let me know so I can contact them...

Thanks much...

No luck... I have malabrigo, but only lace yarn, and the only colorway I could give you would be "autumn something", if it's called that...

But wait a sec, I'll check it up, if I can find that online yarn shop.

EDIT:

The yarn shop (online) I had in mind still has Calypso as an option. (In worsted weight)
But ordering it for you, then sending it to you would get quite expensive....
(Since they only ship to Germany.)

If you really really really want it, I will order it for you though

(But consider getting me back the money somehow... if you can. I know it's egoistic, but I can't be spending a fortune on shipping costs alone,... So I would really be pleased by some kind of remuneration)

Are you on Ravelry? There are several people on there willing to trade or sell Calypso. Probably different dye lots that yours though.

I will can alert them to this thread if you like.
