When deciding to add a new plant-based yarn to the Malabrigo offerings, 100% Pima Cotton was the obvious choice. Its softness, strength, and shine are perfect for both warmer weather and those in between times where you just need a little something. Plus, this new fibre in the yarn required different techniques and different dyes, but they had to achive the same bright, intense Malabrigo style colors you expect from them. Knitting year round with Malabrigo just got a little bit cooler!
Great for: Accessories, garments, baby and kids items, housewares, toys, cables, textured stitches, colorwork. Margarita Shawl pictured is a free Ravelry download using 3 colours of Malabrigo Verano - Plum, Winsome and Rain. Enjoy!

As the Malabrigo yarns, Verano Pima cotton is all kettle dyed in small batches of 5 skeins, there can be significant colour variation between the online image and the actual yarn. We recommend alternating balls between rows to produce a more consistent colourway in your projects. Also we recommend you purchase enough yarn to finish your project as it is very difficult to match different dyelots.
