Malabrigo Yarns supplied by Yarn etc…
A family-owned yarn company
‘Located in Uruguay and Peru. We have developed a line of Hand-Dyed yarns of incredible softness and wonderful color variations.
Our products are made out of the softest fibres available and inspired by nature, as well as landscapes, places, art and day-to-day life.’
We produce yarn because we are passionate about it.
‘We believe in the pleasure of knitting. With high-quality, carefully designed, subtly dyed yarns and in the joy of wearing what is created with them.
Our wish is to continue developing yarns and colors to inspire people all over the world and, in return, be inspired by them.’
Most of Malabrigo’s yarns are made with 100% Uruguayan Merino wool.
‘Uruguay has one of the biggest wool supplies in the world. For good reason as it is of an extremely high quality, especially in regards to softness.
Our wool is 100 % produced by Uruguayan farms. They allow their free – range sheep through the hills and are herded by actual old – style shepherds.
The controversial practice of mulesing does not exist in Uruguay. When using Merino wool of a different origin, we make sure it is also mulesing – free.’
Some of our yarns use other fibres
‘Such as Silky Merino (a blend of our Merino and top-quality Silk), Mora (100% Mulberry Silk) and Silkpaca (Baby Alpaca from Peru and top-quality Silk).
As well as the Dos Tierras, a blend with 50% of our Merino with 50% Baby Alpaca from Peru and our newest yarn Caprino (a blend of Alpaca, Cashmere and Merino) and Verano (100% Pima cotton).
We always ensure that our materials come from the best suppliers available here in Uruguay and around the world.’
