Malabrigo & The Wyoming Collection

As longtime readers know, for the past couple months we’ve been working hard on a project in collaboration with Malabrigo yarn company.

We were delighted to work with a company as wonderful as Malabrigo for these reasons:

1. They are a small, family business based in Uruguay.

2. They are passionate about their product.

3. Their yarn is Abbey’s favorite to work with for new designs.

4. They offer yarn support for independent designers (not all yarn companies do!).

5. They provided the yarn for us to design seven original pieces all connected to one theme, and then they promote our project on their blog and social media sites. They call this collaboration the “MFPP“.

From Malabrigo’s blog: 

What on earth is “MFPP”? 

MFPP stands for Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project. 

Every month, we collaborate with an independent designer (or two) to bring you delightfully themed pattern collections! 

You can see past MFPP collections here.

  1. I absolutely LOVE Malabrigo yarns! I was traveling for family funeral some time ago and noticed a little yarn shop near my hotel….In I went, of course! we just cannot resist a yarn shop!
    I bought two skeins of Malabrigo (silky merino) – with no specific project in mind…then had to find more to finish a long convertible infinity scarf. It is absolutely the nicest yarn I’ve ever worked with! I just found a new shop near me and bought MORE and MORE Malabrigo silky merino AND some worsted….
    Love it! and will always look for it!

    1. I totally understand the obsession! I seriously love all their yarn. I’d like to swim in a pool of their silky merino.

      Happy crocheting!
