It was love at first sight with this yarn!
Marla is made from two strands of lighter-weight yarn that have been dyed in the wool and then plied together. The gorgeous colours of this 2-ply "Barber Pole" style yarn create and effect similar to handspun or Spin Cycle Dyed in the Wool. When worked, Marla creates a marled fabric, where the colours are uniquely distributed.
Marla is a beautiful and bouncy DK weight superwash merino wool. The palette is connected directly to the Sami palette - they coordinate with each other to make gorgeous colour pairings!
If you are looking for pattern inspiration, Cathy knit this with Sami to make Quill Crossing.
Other ideas: Saturn Shawl is a FREE pattern using one skein of Marla and one of Sami. Amalia Cardigan is a FREE colourwork pattern. Heidi May's Dash Cowl makes a lovely crocheted piece using just one skein of each!
Manos del Uruguay has a unique mission to improve the lives of the Uruguay’s rural women through handcrafts. Every skein of yarn has a tag with the artisan signature and the name of the village where the cooperative is located reminding that behind each handmade item, there is a woman and her story.
We recommend buying enough yarn to complete a project. To give an overall blended effect, we recommend alternating skeins, knitting one or two rows from one skein and then one or two rows from another.
