Malabrigo is a family owned yarn company in Uruguay and Peru that strives to employ women that might have trouble finding employment otherwise. While the company is relatively new (founded in 2005), it is well-loved around the world. The best part? Malabrigo does not practice muelsing and when the company sources outside merino, they make sure it's muelsing-free as well.
Chunky is a plied bulky weight yarn with excellent stitch definition, and its softness makes it great for next-to-skin wear. The colors can be semi-solid or variegated. Both are great for both simple and intricate stitch patterns.
Due to the dyeing process, there may be variation between photos shown and specific color batches.
