Movida Hispana. (In Spanish)

Este es un post muy especial para nosotros, ya que desde hace un tiempo venimos pensando y trabajando en malabrigo habla hispana, y al fin hemos empezado a dar nuestros primeros pasos!

Recientemente se acaba de inaugurar un grupo en Ravelry, malabrigo habla en español, administrado por Trelly Hernández y ElTelardeIxche, acá vas a poder encontrar diseños realizados con hilado malabrigo, y sus patrones van a estar en español y en ingles! Ya puedes ir practicando con unos geniales diseños realizados por Trelly Hernández.  Para que se hagan a la idea y vayan buscando sus agujas, les dejamos unas lindas imágenes de los diseños de Trelly.

Interweave KnitScene, Accesories 2014

The Interweave KnitScene Accessories 2014 edition has hit the magazine stands and features a pattern knitted with Malabrigo.

The pattern is Peacock Ascot by Simone Kereit. It uses 2 skeins of Silky Merino in 412 Teal Feather Colorway. 

Silky Merino is our DK weight half silk – half merino yarn. In this color it mimics the sheen of bird feathers, while a simple stitch pattern evokes the idea of peacock feathers. Pair with some eye-catching buttons for added oomph.

Knitscene Accessories, 2012 – Interweave

Interweave has released Knitscene Accesories for 2012, a super-size special issue that comes with 17 really interesting and eye-catching patterns.

On clear example is Brazel Beret by Katya Frankel, knit with Malabrigo Rios in Sunset (#96). The fact that you only need one skein to make the beret, makes it tempting to knit it in different colours to match your wardrobe and put a touch of colour to the cold autumn days if you live in the southern hemisphere, and some warmth to the chilly spring nights if you live more up north.

Finito is coming!!

It is our great pleasure to introduce the newest addition to the Malabrigo line of yarns: Finito!Spun from the finest merino wool in Uruguay, Finito is an incredibly soft fingering weight 2-ply yarn, perfect for lacework, delicate accessories, and luxurious garments. It will be available mid-March in a rainbow of colors- some old favorites (Archangel, Indiecita) and some brand new!

This exclusive merino is even softer than our usual wool- it is scrumptious! It is available only in very small quantities once a year, and so Finito is also available in limited quantities. Extremely fine and very limited- this yarn lives up to it’s name! Snap some up before it’s gone until next year!

To see the full range of color options for Finito, please visit:

To purchase Finito, please inquire at your local yarn store. A full list of Malabrigo stockists is available here:

Knitter’s Magazine, K105 Winter


Knitter’s Magazine K105 Winter  is out, and it features a pattern called Amber Waves, by E. J. Slavton, using Malabrigo Yarns Rios in color Sunset (#96).

Golden ribs are perforated with panels of zigzag lace. The twisted rib is sleek and perfect for a cardigan that means business at home or in the office.

Amber Waves, by E. J. Slavton

The skill level needed to knit this pattern is Intermediate. It comes in sizes 35½ (39, 43, 47, 51)  ”. You’ll need 1125 – 1775 yards of Malabrigo Yarns Rios to complete this project, depending on the chosen size. Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. In some colourways the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, we recommend that you knit your project alternating a few rows from two different skeins at once.
