Verano is a DK 100% pima cotton that comes in a beautiful range of both tonal and variegated shades. 

What is pima cotton? Pima cotton has very long fibres and is considered to be one of the superior types of cotton along with Egyption cotton. The fibre length means Pima cotton weaves into a very soft yet durable fabric.  Cotton is a wonderful fibre for summer as it’s breathable, and therefore doesn’t provide as much warmth as wool for example.

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.

Verano cotton would work well for crochet accessories, summery tops and transitional pieces such as light cardigans and jumpers.
