A little bit from home

We would like to invite you into our home, to get to know us a little better.

For 11 years now you have known and worked with our products, which are well received all over the world. We don't have the words to express how thankful we are for that.

We wanted to give you a little inside look at where those products are created and what inspires them. We have been thinking about how to do that for a while, and finally it's here, a small glimse into our home, and our surroundings. We hope you enjoy it!

Malabrigo Quickie for October

This entry was posted on 18th October, 2017 by Barbara .

October has brought us a super fun and fast Quickie from the designer Talitha Kuomi. Using only one beautiful skein of Mecha you can knit up reflektor in no time!

Talitha worked up two different versions of her new scarf, one in Mostaza (yellow) and the other in Paysandu (purple/pink). A little bit of shaping goes a long way to create points at each end and an intriguing point in the middle that takes this from a simple scarf to a fashion accessory statement.

There are two options, one involves you raiding your local jewelry making stash for clip on bits and bobbles to decorate the scarf.

Or if fringe is more your style, instructions are included on how to add just the right amount!

Hop over to Ravelry and then pick out your favorite color of Mecha and you could have this stylish new scarf before you know it!

See you next month to see what October has for us!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

We really enjoy showcasing the work knitters do with our yarns, and have dedicated most of our presence online to do so. Obviously one of the reasons is it's the best way to show our product, for others to see how it looks when worked up in different patterns, but we also think it's important to put a big spotlight on the knitters out there that do a wonderful job.

It's in this spirit that we would like to leave in the blog the 5 projects that you liked best from our Instagram account, as a sort of snapshot of the month.

Malabrigo Quickies are Back Again!

This entry was posted on 22nd September, 2017 by Barbara .

That's right, Quickies are back! We are very excited to present the first of many new patterns designed by independent designers to highlight one or two skeins of lucious Malabrigo yarn. In the works are plans for at least one new pattern a month. The patterns will vary in what base they use and complexity level, small doesn't necessarily mean easy, but don't worry - there is sure to be something for every level of knitter.

To kick things off we are pleased to present a new pattern from Heather Zoppetti. Meet her new lace scarf Maglia.

When asked to give us a few thoughts about the pattern Heather had this to say:

This pattern was inspired by empty winter trellises awiting spring blooms. The mesh pattern in created in garter stitch and is completely reversible.


A simple pattern to memorize, this scarf is a fun and fast knit that looks great in variegated sock yarn. Once you make one, you won’t be able to stop!

Maglia features one skein of Malabrigo Sock in the color Rayon Vert. Of course, it is so hard to narrow down color choices so we asked Heather if she had other colors she thought would play well with this pattern. She suggested Fresco y Seco, Abril, and Light of Love. Following up with the statement "Pretty much any of the variegated colors will look awesome."

Which brings up a good point. We have heard your feedback and know that you want more patterns that compliment our highly variegated yarns so you can look forward to many more Quickies that do so.

Hopefully this beautiful scarf has inspired you to pick up your needles, a special skein of Sock, and get knitting. Make sure to click through to the Ravelry page and check out all of the other photos. Heather has styled this super long scarf in a variety of interesting ways that are sure to inspire you.
