I bought two skeins of Malabrigo sock, one in chocolate and one in primavera. They are gorgeously soft and the colours are rich and vibrant. They will make a beautiful shawl. Thanks saltwater purls!
I love this yarn. So soft, and so many great colours to choose from.
Always happy with any of my purchases from Saltwater Purls, and best service around too!!
