Mecha is a rare single-ply superwash yarn. Malabrigo's merino wool takes color in the most vivid, rich way, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the multi-layered hues of Mecha! Soft as always, Mecha has a slight thick-and-thin texture, a fantastic loft, and is the perfect size for quick, chunky projects. Mecha is available in a range of unique “watercolor multi” colorways as well as a rainbow of semi-solid basics.
Great for: Accessories, garments, baby and kids items, cables, textured stitches.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each lot is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from lot to lot or even skein to skein. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. Made in Peru.
