It’s time to show off the Malabrigo Partner Crate for May! This club is one of our most anticipated and has routinely sold out each month.
This month’s Malabrigo Crates pulled from the cooler tone side of our mood board, and we’re featuring Dos Tierras, a really luxurious alpaca and merino wool yarn with a unique texture and beautiful hand. This yarn is named for the way it combines the ‘two lands’ of Malabrigo’s home, Uruguay, where the wool comes from, and Peru, the home of the alpacas and also where the yarn is spun. We’re sending you one skein of rich teal Reflecting Pool and one skein of Polar Morn, designed to be used together in either of this month’s patterns.
The knitting pattern for this quarter comes from IrinaPi and is called Belah. This skinny shawl is asymmetrical and a beautiful replacement for heavier scarves as we head into warmer weather. In this fiber blend, it has a lot of drape and feels so good next to your skin. It has a beautiful edging and sweet little bobbles that remind us of blueberries!
Julie from ACCROchet joins us for this quarter’s crate as our crochet designer, and has used one of her favorite stitches to highlight this lovely yarn in her buttoned cowl, Wavelength.
Our extras for this Malabrigo Crate are handy and cute. First, we found these ADORABLE sticky notes that are shaped like fruit (we’ll show how to assemble these in the Instagram Live today at 1 PM CST). They come in a variety of fruit and veggie shapes, so it will be fun to see who gets what–we’ve got apples, pears, citrus, and even an eggplant! Pull off a single note as a ‘slice’ and jot down a reminder for your pattern or a cute note for the fridge.
We’ve also included a wheel-round, fruit themed stitch marker storage container. We’ve got Lemon-Lime, Pomelo (Grapefruit), Orange and Blueberry (without wedges imprinted on the front).
If you missed getting into Malabrigo Crate this round, we do have a wait list set up again. However, this is the last wait list where you’ll be guaranteed a spot. We’re capping the club at capacity for August 2019, so if you want in, get on that wait list!
