Mechita is a fingering-weight version of their beautifully-dyed single-ply superwash yarn. Just as soft and rich as the original, but great for lighter projects!

Great for: Shawls, scarves, garments, accessories, baby and kids items, lace, cables, textured stitches.

Fiber: 100% superwash merino wool
Gauge: 26 - 30 sts = 4 in
Yardage: 420 yds, 100 g
Needle: US 1 - 2
Care: Machine washable, gentle cycle, cold water, dry flat

Need a fun pattern idea? The beautiful Expeditious Shawl knit pattern is available FREE on Ravelry, just click HERE.

If you prefer to crochet, just request in your order notes that we send you the

5 of 5 Right for Red Hair March 31, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Knoxville, TN United States  
I bought Mechita in Retriever - a reddish gold color. I was hoping it would be good for a lace shawl to match my red hair and it is. Of course, it has all of Malabrigo's wonderful characteristics of softness, stitch definition and making up well in lace. I have used it before and am not disappointed. Would recommend highly.
