Emphasis on the “mmmmm” for the new test yarns that flew into our shop today.  I opened the box and suddenly a swarm of Mal junkies blinded me for about 15 minutes.  When I was able to see again I noticed that some of the hanks were gone! 

We received a fingering weight 80% merino wool, 20% cashmere in 100 gram hanks.  Each hank has 450 yards of merino-cashmere yarn.  This beautiful yarn has a lovely hand and begs to be knitted, crocheted and worn next to skin.  Malabrigo Merino/Cashmere Fingering comes in Stonechat, Teal Feather, Azul Profundo and Ravelry Red color lines.  They are pretty and beautifully dyed in richly saturated color lines.

We also received lace weight 80/20 merino/cashmere that is put up in 100 gram hanks with tons of yardage, 1170 yards per hank to be exact.  We got only one color, Indiecita.


And finally, there was a gorgeous hank of 100% bamboo thrown in for good measure.  It is a HUGE 480 gram hank of bamboo yarn that is a 6-ply.  The label for the yarn does not give too much info but the weight appears to be light worsted and I am guessing the hank has approximately 950-1050 yards of bamboo yarn with a silky sheen.  Malabrigo Bamboo in Mystery Color Line  Color line was not named and I have not been able to guess.  Any suggestions?

I am off to work on the site – I have another surprise for you for tomorrow morning.  Must go get a cup of tea first.

  1. I’m pretty sure the bamboo is a REALLY light version of Stonechat. Maybe bamboo doesn’t take the dyes on as bright as animal fibers..?
