Island Wools

Malabrigo Twist

Twist is a densely-plied, true Aran-weight yarn made from the same soft merino as our Worsted. It has a fantastic drape and warmth, and a lush, thick, “weighty” hand- truly decadent! It comes in an array of rich semi-solid and variegated colors, and has a slight thick-and-thin texture that adds depth the surface of your finished project.
