Mechita is a fingering-weight version of Malabrigo’s beautifully-dyed, single-ply superwash yarn. It’s just as soft and rich in color as the original, bulky weight version, Mecha, but perfect for lighter projects! Mechita is ideal for shawls, scarves, and other accessories. And being machine washable, it’s fantastic for baby and kids projects too.

Like all Malabrigo yarns, Mechita is kettle-dyed in small batches by artisan dyers and is full of subtle variation and beauty. Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins vary from bag to bag. Particularly for variegated colors, skeins will vary from one to the next even within the same bag and will vary, sometimes substantially, from what is pictured. Twisted staff will do our best to fill your order with skeins from the same dye lot that visually match. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. 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.
