Yarn of the Month
The yarn of the month for Malabrigo March is Dos Tierras by Malabrigo. Dos Tierras is a blend of 50% the Merino Wool from Uruguay that Malabrigo is famous for and 50% Baby Alpaca from Peru.  Both the finest fibers from each country combine to produce this yarn that is rustic and luxurious at the same time. Dos Tierras is cable-plied (consisting of two 2-ply yarns plied together) making for a very dense and round yarn, working up as a DK weight with 210 yards per 100g skein. The alpaca gives it some drape, while the wool makes Dos Tierras bouncier than most alpaca blends. Dos Tierras is fantastic for sweaters, shawls, cowls, slouch hats and many other accessories. Some projects perfectly suited for Dos Tierras are: Comfort Fade Cardi, Rikke Hat, Toph (hat), Chatham (stole), Touchstone (shawl), and Barnstable (shawl). Come and grab a few skeins while they are 10% off!
