100% Merino - Nube is Spanish for Cloud
Spinners asked and Malabrigo listened! Their ultra-soft merino is available as unspun top, in a selection of the most beloved Malabrigo colourways. It is truly a joy to spin, full of fluff and loft and unmatched softness! Of course, you can also knit with the roving itself for a uniquely fluffy effect, or use it for thrums or needle felting.

Dyelot Batches: Like all Malabrigo yarns, Nube is kettle-dyed in small batches of 4 bundles by artisan dyers and is full of subtle variation and beauty. We suggest buying enough in the same dyelot batch to complete your project as skeins may vary from bag to bag hence the separate dyelot listings. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
