Once a year lambs are sheared of their coat, and once a year Malabrigo is able to go in and purchase the cream of the crop. This yarn is unbelievably super, super soft and very luxurious. The yarn they have created is a kettle dyed, "fingering" weight, 50 gram skeins with 200 yards per skein. It uses #2-4 needles. This yarn is a limited edition. Once it is gone, it is gone!
