Malabrigo Washted yarn is an amazing and beautiful worsted single ply yarn that shines!
Malabrigo Washted is a superwash version of Malabrigo Worsted yarn. It is super soft and bouncy. Because it is made of 100% Merino Wool, it is very gentle even worn next to the skin. As a result of being superwash and merino, there is no scratchy wool here!
Malabrigo kettle dyes their yarn, so you get beautiful variation. They really have an amazing eye for color and create colorways that knit, crochet or weave up into absolutely stunning projects.
Washted would be good for just about any project that calls for worsted weight yarn and doesn't require felting. For example, hats, scarves, wraps, mittens and gloves would all look gorgeous with Malabrigo Washted. Additionally, projects for the home like blankets and pillows would become conversation pieces with the yarn. Projects made with this yarn are easy to wash and care for.
We recommend getting all of the yarn you need for a project at the same time. Malabrigo does not have dye lots, and the best way to get the colors to match up are to buy them at the same time.
