Malabrigo is a family-owned company started by two brothers in law in their kitchen and with their dye pots. 

Based in Uruguay, Malabrigo specialise in hand-dyed yarns and they also produce their own unique bases. Some of the fleece used comes from their own flock of merino sheep who are grazed near their headquarters in Montevideo. The rest is sourced from Uruguayan farms where sheep are allowed to graze free-range through the hills and are herded by ranchers. Please also note that mulesing is not practiced in Uruguay. 

In 2017 Malabrigo started using renewable wood pellets as their main source of energy.

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. To ensure random colour distribution, work from 2 balls of yarn at once, a few rows from each ball.
