Malabrigo Silky Merino Yarn Reviews

This single ply silk and merino blend is absolutely stunning. A subtle sheen gives depth to the gorgeous kettle-dyed colorways making Silky Merino the perfect choice for high fashion projects and dressy accessories.

PLEASE NOTE: This yarn is dyed in dye lots of ten skeins only. We are happy to visually match hanks for consistency should you need more than 10 skeins for a project, but we are unable to get more than 10 skeins per dye lot.

Beautiful yarn! Joy to work with! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Had purchased two skeins of this yarn while traveling - and determined that I needed more to do a chosen project. I was thrilled to find it at Jimmy Beans and was delighted with the speed with which this order was filled and delivered to me. Jimmy Beans communicated with me and was very responsive and pleasant in those communications! Will definitely order from them again!

Very happy 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
The colors are much cleaner. They look a bit muddy or subdued on the computer screen. Very nice quality and I love the sheen.

Much darker than pictured 1 out of 5 stars (1 out of 5)
Instead of mid tones like peach, tan, beige, and pink, mine came with dark brown, wine, green??, and deep plum. For the money I spent on 10 skeins, I'm disappointed.
