Malagrigo’s yarn is hand-dyed and comes in a wide range of colours and varieties. The company is famous for championing equal pay for women in Peru and providing them with opportunities.
Malabrigo yarn is hand-dyed, which means that there might be some variation from skein to skein. Because of this, we recommend alternating skeins every one or two rows when knitting to avoid colour pooling.
Malabrigo try to minimise the use of chemicals in yarn production. They are also trying to reduce their water consumption. According to their website, they meet the Oeko-Tex 1907/2006 CE standards.
Malabrigo yarn is made in Peru. The wool is sourced from free-range, mulesing-free sheep in Uruguay. The alpaca they use is from Peru and the silk is from suppliers in Italy.
Malabrigo literally means ‘bad shelter.’ The owners say they imagine ‘Malabrigo’ as an imaginary place with inhospitable weather where the people need cosy yarn to keep warm.Please contact us if you have any questions.
