Most of malabrigo’s yarns are made with 100% Uruguayan Merino wool. Uruguay has one of the biggest wool supplies in the world, and for good reason as it is of an extremely high quality, especially in regards to softness. The wool is 100 % produced by Uruguayan farms that allow their free - range sheep through the hills and are herded by actual old - style shepherds.The controversial practice of mulesing does not exist in Uruguay.
As malabrigo yarns are hand-dyed, colours may vary from skein to skein, even within the same dye lot. This is increased for variegated colours. Make sure you have enough yarn for your project and alternate skeins every few rows for better colour distribution.
