Beautiful Yarn by Malabrigo

Have you had a chance to work with the gorgeous colors and fibers of Malabrigo? This family-owned company, located in Uruguay, features hand-dyed yarns of incredible softness and wonderful, rich color variations. Here are just a few of our favorites:

Fun fact: the name “malabrigo” roughly translates to “bad shelter.” This is from the Malabrigo website:

How did you get the name ‘malabrigo’?

  • “Mal abrigo” roughly translates to “bad shelter”, which is by all accounts a curious name for a yarn company.The name partially comes from the small village of Mal Abrigo in Uruguay. It was named as such because it is extremely windy and back when people rode horses and too often had to take shelter for the night, it was renowned for being a terrible place to stop.There are several towns of that name in South America (in other countries) but that was the one we had in mind.

    We were also inspired by novelists like Garcia Marquez, Juan Carlos Onetti, and William Faulkner, who set their novels in the magical but imaginary towns (Macondo, Santa Maria, and the towns in Yoknapatawpha County, respectively!). In our minds, malabrigo is an imaginary and chilly place where the weather drives everyone inside to knit, or to cozy up to the fire, where wool sweaters, hats, and scarves are always useful!
