Malabrigo Chunky

Malabrigo Chunky Yarn is a beautiful mix of color and fiber texture. Chunky’s nice, smooth texture and semi-solid colors make it perfect for bulky cables and bold textures - or choose a variegated colorway and let the colors do the work! Made with warm, soft Merino wool, Malabrigo Chunky Yarn is a delight to craft into any winter wearable. Because the colors make the garment, this chunky yarn is ideal for cardigans that have simple classic style. This beautiful merino yarn makes up into an unbelievably cozy winter wear.

The colors and the size of the yarn make even simple garment look splendid.  Try the Ramona Carigan by Elizabeth Smith.

Great for: Quick knits, accessories, outerwear, housewares, toys, cables, textured stitches.

Because the yarn is chunky, it literally flies off you needles!  Great for Christmas time when your projects need to be completed by the time you have to play Santa Claus.

Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag.  Malabrigo is kettle dyed and sometimes the skeins may vary one from to the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
