Mecha means single ply in Uruguayan Spanish. This yarn is similar to Malabrigo's popular and classic Worsted single ply yarn, but heavier and superwash!
Yep, you heard us right, a rare single-ply superwash yarn! Malabrigo's superwash merino takes color in the most vivid, rich way, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the multi-layered hues of Mecha! Soft as always, Mecha has a slight thick-and-thin texture, a fantastic loft, and is the perfect size for quick but not-too-heavy projects.
Mecha is great for accessories, garments, baby and kids items, cables, textured stitches, and more! We've heard tell of it making a fantastic dog sweater. Because it's both machine washable and dryable, you'll get that luxury feel that's easy to care for!
Like all Malabrigo yarns, Mecha is hand-dyed in small batches by artisan dyers. Particularly for variegated colors, skeins can vary from one to the next even within the same bag and can also vary, sometimes substantially, from what is pictured. Photographing each skein would be impossible, but we do our best to keep our eyes peeled for drastic deviation from the general color profile shown. Feel free to leave us notes at checkout to help us make sure you're happy!
Please buy enough for your entire project all at once. We will select skeins from the same dye lot or, if there is no dye lot, skeins that visually match. If you add multiple skeins of the same yarn to your cart you'll be prompted at checkout to select how to proceed if we have concerns about skeins matching.
While colors shown are accurate to the best of our ability, computer monitors and dye lots both vary so the skeins you receive may differ from what is shown.
