This is for the lay-knitter, not professionals. This is for people like me who might not necessarily be fiber experts despite being a crocheter or knitter for a long time, but need an honest opinion about yarn before they dive into a project with it.
The yarn: Malabrigo Silky Merino
150 yards, 137 meters
50 grams, 1.76 oz
- 51% silk, 49% merino
The project: Adam's Ribs Cap Sleeve Wrap by Carol Sunday
What I liked: This yarn is soft, light, and very warm. Shows off my stitch pattern beautifully. I've worn this a lot since I finished it at the beginning of September. Minimal pilling, and I haven't washed it yet. I do think I'll need to remove the fuzz starting to form by the end of the year though.
What I didn't like: Hmm. Hard to say. I guess It didn't block the way I expected, although that was probably more of a pinning issue than a yarn issue. It fit really nicely horizontally but due to the pattern of the ribbing, it lost the horizontal length during blocking and while I love the added vertical length, it doesn't quite fit the same across my front.
Affordability: Approximately $9-10 per skein
Rating: I really loved working with this yarn. Malabrigo yarns have yet to disappoint me. 5/5 stars.
