Malabrigo are a family owned company based in Uruguay. They produce stunningly beautiful hand-dyed yarns of great softness that are a true delight to work with. The colours need to be seen to be truly appreciated for their subtlety and depth.
The company uses environmentally safe practices using as little water and as few chemicals as possible. Malabrigo employs mostly women and tries to give job opportunities to people that have fewer opportunities than the average.
Most Malabrigo yarns are made with 100% Uruguayan merino wool. The wool is produced by farms that allow their sheep to range freely through the hills, looked after by old-style shepherds. They also use silk, mulberry silk and baby alpaca.
