Malabrigo is a family-owned yarn company located in Uruguay and Peru and they have created a gorgeous line of hand-dyed yarns with incredible softness and stunning colour variation.
Most of Malabrigo's yarns are made with 100% Uruguayan Merino wool. Uruguay has one of the biggest wool supplies in the world, and for good reason as it is of an extremely high quality, especially in regards to softness. The wool is 100% produced by Uruguayan farms that allow their free-range sheep through the hills and are herded by actual old-style shepherds. The controversial practice of mulesing does not exist in Uruguay. When using a wool of a different origin, they make sure it is also mulesing-free.
