Malabrigo Silky Merino is an absolute delight - Janine's comment when we saw it was, "We have to have this!" It's a gorgeous mix of silk and Uruguayan merino in a single-ply DK yarn - the silk gives it much more drape and a subtle sheen compared to a pure merino yarn. 

The combination is soft, smooth and itch-free even on the most sensitive skin, making it absolutely wonderful for shawls, accessories and other next-to-your-skin items.

Silky Merino is made with 100% Uruguayan Merino wool. Uruguay has one of the biggest wool supplies in the world and is of an extremely high quality, especially in regards to softness. Malabrigo wool is 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.
