Mechita is a fingering-weight version of Malabrigo's beautifully dyed single-ply superwash Mecha yarn. It's just as soft and rich as the original, but great for lighter projects such as shawls, scarves, garments, accessories, baby and kids items! Mechita is also a fantastic choice for lace, cables, and textured stitches.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. Some skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

It's never a disappointment working with Malabrigo Mechita. Every project comes out looking so professional. One of my favourite yarns to design with.
Malabrigo is one of my favourite yarns for shawls. Great stitch definition, gorgeous colour selection and beautiful drape.
Thank you Gwen for your excellent, friendly service.
Thanks for the excellent assistance with matching this yarn up for me. Haven't started my project yet, will keep you posted.
