Truly a unique yarn! Malabrigo starts with a bulky thick-and-thin single made of their delightfully soft superwash merino wool, and then they criss-cross it with a binder thread (either black or white.) Then the yarn is dyed one of their signature kettle-dyed colorways, and: poof! It knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with a ton of texture and visual interest. Simple stitch patterns really let it sing!
