    Malabrigo Mechita is a fingering-weight version of Mecha, it's bulky-weight big sister.  This superwash yarn is a single-ply giving it a very soft hand that is beautifully-dyed in the tradition of Malabrigo. Just as soft and rich as the original Mecha, but ideal for lighter projects such as shawls, scarves, garments, accessories, plus baby and children's items.

    Needle Size – US 1 - 2 / 2.25 - 2.75mm
    Hook Size – US D - 7 / 3.25 - 4mm
    Skein Weight – 3.5 oz / 100 grams
    Skein Yardage - 420 yards / 384 meters

    Many colors do not have dye lots, and those that do, are dyed in lots of 10.  Any project requiring more than 10 skeins will require more than one dye lot.

    Note about Hand Dyed Yarns – While we love the exquisite colors available in hand dyed yarns, there can be significant variations from skein to skein.  Please follow these guidelines to ensure success:

    • Purchase enough yarn to complete your project, allowing for a bit of overage, just in case!
    • Not all differences in skeins is obvious when comparing skeins.
    • For projects that require 2 or more skeins, we highly recommend blending your skeins by using 2 balls at once, alternating every couple of rows from each ball. This should blend any variations between skeins.
