When deciding to add a new plant-based yarn to our 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 yarn was a fun puzzle for us to figure out. Different fiber means different techniques and different dyes, but we had to achieve the same bright, intense malabrigo style colors you expect from us. Knitting year round with malabrigo just got a little bit cooler!

Great for: Accessories, garments, baby and kids items, housewares, toys, cables, textured stitches, color-work.

Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. Skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. 

When we dye our yarns, the same formula is used each time but every batch of yarn is assigned a different dye lot number. The differences from one dye lot to another can be very subtle, or extremely noticeable, specially on variegated yarns.
When we assign a dye lot number the main use is to identify which skeins can be labeled and packed together. After our quality control team checks the skeins, they go to the labeling section and then are put in bags of five or ten (depending on the yarn).
Once the bags get to the yarn stores, most skeins go to different shelves where they can get mixed. The dye lot code is really helpful when you try to find skeins that match.

Unfortunately, we don't have a record of which yarn store receives a specific dye lot and it's impossible for us to find out where you can find the same dye lot skeins.  

The colors shown on photos are illustrated as reference, as mentioned above, they can differ on more or less of one tone, due to the hand-dyed process.
