Malabrigo

Malabrigo is a family-owned yarn company in Uruguay that was founded in 2005. They are recognized worldwide for their magical hand-dyed colourways and scrumptiously soft merino wool bases.

All of Malabrigo's superwash processes and colorants meet Oeko-Tex standards. Their wool is 100% produced by Uruguayan farms that allow their  free-range sheep through the hills, herded by shepherds. Like Canada, the controversial practice of mulesing does not exist in Uruguay.

You are always welcome to contact us for pictures of the skeins we have on hand to ensure that you recieve the exact colours you are looking for! Hand dyed works of art like Malabrigo skeins can be quite different - not just year to year, but even within the same shipment! Don't hesitate to reach out to us for any colour inquiries or concerns.


  • Arroyo

    Malabrigo Arroyo


    A soft and sturdy plied sport-weight, Arroyo has quickly become a favorite among knitters! It’s perfect for those everyday lightweight (but warm) garments, and the superwash wool means it’s easy to take care of. Think of it as Rios' baby brother! (And speaking of babies, it’s perfect for them too.)

    Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may (will!) vary from bag to bag. In some colours, the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random colour distribution in larger projects, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. Do not hesitate to ask us for a picture comparing colours, or even skeins within the same lot, to make sure you like the shade you are ordering.

  • Mecha

    Malabrigo Mecha

    A rare single-ply superwash yarn! Malabrigo's superwash merino takes color in the most vivid, rich way, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the multi-layered hues of Mecha! Soft as always, Mecha has a slight thick-and-thin texture, a fantastic loft, and is the perfect size for quick but not-too-heavy projects.

  • Rios

    Malabrigo Rios


    Soft, strong, and washable, this 4-ply yarn is Malabrigo's workhorse! The plies help resist pilling and its washability makes it fantastic for frequently-worn garments, housewares, and children and baby clothes. And like all our yarns, it’s super soft and great for next-to-the-skin wear! Spun from our premium superwash merino, it comes in an array of watercolor-multi, semi-solid, and variegated colorways.

  • Washted

    Malabrigo Washted


    A superwash version of the classic Malabrigo Worsted Merino base. While remaining true to the original singly-ply softness of worsted, Malabrigo ‘washed it’ so you can too, allowing more freedom and ease of care.

    Having the same weight as Malabrigo Worsted, it can be used interchangeably for any projects you may have planned for Worsted. 

    Like all of Malabrigo's yarns, Washted is kettle-dyed in small batches by their artisan dyers and is full of subtle variation and beauty. 

    Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may (will!) vary from bag to bag. In some colours, the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag.
