Yarn Review: Malabrigo Sock

Malabrigo SockMalabrigo Sock is a classic in my mind. Lots of people love it for socks, but to me, it’s the perfect shawl yarn. A 100% super soft merino is great for big cozy shawls or lacey cowls against your neck. It has a great hand, which lends itself well to drapey shawls, but also holds blocking well and has great stitch definition, which is great for cozy, textured shawls. I’m also always tempted by pretty variegated colourways, but some companies and dyers are better at laying out the colourways so they look just as nice once they’re knit as they did in the skein. Malabrigo is definitely one of those companies. I’ve yet to see a colourway that didn’t knit up amazingly.
