Mmmm Malabrigo!! (more mailbox madness)

I am a spoilt little sweetp. Yes I am.


Gasp. This colourway is so perfectly "me" - I definitely would have picked this one. STUNNING! Super Bulky Malabrigo Aquarella "Midas".



Kettle Dyed Merino Worsted - colourway "Sealing Wax" - this was a colourway I'd drooled over online. I can't help but sing lines from Puff the Magic Dragon (as a child I wondered why Puff and Jackie played with ceiling wax).

Could this be any more gorgeous?


In my favourite colour some Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair.

So beautiful, so soft.

Yarn envy anyone? Its a crime you can't get Malabrigo in NZ (that I know of anyway...if I'm wrong DO tell). Someone should be importing this yarn so we can enjoy it too! Hmmm SweetP Yarns has a nice ring to it.

I'm so torn between wanting to cast on right now and just leaving them out on the table so I can wander past and pet them. My el-budget camera really doesnt do them justice so you will have to take my word for it that these are some beautiful yarns!!

Wondering how you can get Malabrigo in your mailbox too?

First you have to have a lovely & talented blog buddy on the other side of the world who likes to do yarn shopping. Then you have to let her twist your arm into doing an international yarn swappie ( there was no convincing needed really.... she said 'shall we do a swap' and I was like OF COURSE!!). She'll be so kind and get you some yarn you've been wanting to try and send you some much coveted yarn made close to her home.

Thank you thank you thank you Sonia. I love it all. You picked the most perfect yarns and colours. I'm totally blown away.

Check your mailbox in about 10 days :)

Omigoodness. You have NO idea how greeeeeeeen with envy I am. I have been lusting after malabrigo since that evil Judy lady put me onto it. I love that sealing wax colourway. Mmmmmm.

Lucky lucky sweetp.

P.S. I may get some from at some point if you are interested ;)

You can get it in Aus, which isn't tooo bad I spose.
I am jealous though, I have wanted to pat Malabrigo for AGES!
Sounds like you will have a good month for special wools, maybe some Noro coming soon too?

Lol Fi. Yip must remember to do the $$ transfer thing this weekend!!!

Yay! I am thrilled that you like the yarn. It was a little bit daunting picking colors for someone else, but it helped that purples are my fave too. You should cast something on asap...Happy knitting!
