Overall Mecha Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (4.8 based on 31 reviews)

Used to be great yarn! 1 out of 5 stars (1 out of 5)
I have used Malabrigo yarn for many projects but no more! I ordered one skein of Mecha and one of Mechita to make the Morton Cowl and now I'll have to look for a substitute yarn. The winding process was a feat greater than my patience and I just gave up. I've never had this problem with any other yarn in 25 years of knitting. Wow, where is the quality control?

Mecha Madness! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I love Malabrigo Mecha. I can't stop buying it and making mittens with it. Malabrigo is my favorite yarn and I am going to keep purchasing it. The colors are so vivid and it never bleeds onto my hands. The only negative about this yarn is that it pills some, but I believe that is the nature of a yarn that is single ply. I love it!

Gorgeous yarn! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Mecha is a beautiful yarn that knits up quickly and makes warm, wonderful hats, scarves, or larger projects like sweaters and coats. The yarn feels soft and is a joy to knit!
