For Your Review: Malabrigo Sock Yarn

Malabrigo sock is one of my favorite sock yarns.

It's Malabrigo, so you know the color is going to be fabulous. The red here is Ravelry Red, a lovely, deep red with subtle variations from Malabrigo's kettle dyeing method.

But, I also love that the yarn is the best of both worlds. It is super soft AND durable. I have yet to have a Malabrigo sock pill or shrink on me. Also, at 440 yards per skein, I can get almost 3 woman's size small socks out of one ball of yarn. So, two skeins of yarn could yield up 3 whole pairs of socks. Wonderful!

Machine-wash is ok, but please hang or lie flat to dry. It would be terrible if one went through the dryer - it probably would shrink, then.

What's your favorite sock yarn?
