Please be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since skeins may vary from bag to bag. (This is a great yarn to have in your stash since it is so versatile!) To ensure random color distribution when using boldly variegated colorways, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
We use product photos that are provided by Malabrigo. Please note that colors may vary due to computer monitors as well as dyelots. Malabrigo has been moving away from dyelots and are now labeling their skeins as "No Dye Lot".
