Collection: Malabrigo

Malabrigo started small, when two brothers-in-law started dyeing wool in a kitchen pot back in 2005. After achieving good results, they started selling a few skeins to the US and, before they knew it, they had quickly grown to other countries in Europe and the rest of the world. To keep up with this growth, they needed to relocate to larger facilities and hire more employees.

More recently the company has moved all production to Peru, keeping the laboratory in Montevideo expressly for product development.

Malabrigo employs mostly women of all ages, and always tries to give job opportunities to people that have fewer opportunities than the average.

Fibres

Most of malabrigo’s yarns are made with 100% Uruguayan Merino wool. Uruguay has one of the biggest wool supplies in the world, and for good reason, as it is of an extremely high quality, especially in regards to softness. Our wool is 100 % produced by Uruguayan farms that allow their free-range sheep through the hills and are herded by actual old-style shepherds. The controversial practice of mulesing does not exist in Uruguay. When using Merino wool of a different origin, we make sure it is also mulesing-free.

Some of our yarns use other fibres, such as Silky Merino (a blend of our Merino and top-quality Silk), Mora (100% Mulberry Silk) and Silkpaca (Baby Alpaca from Peru and top-quality Silk). As well as the Dos Tierras, a blend with 50% of our Merino with 50% Baby Alpaca from Peru and our newest yarn Caprino (a blend of Alpaca, Cashmere and Merino) and Verano (100% Pima cotton).

We always ensure that our materials come from the best suppliers available here in Uruguay and around the world.
