Malabrigo Dos Tierras
The sumptuous blend of merino and alpaca strikes the perfect balance between warmth, drape, and softness. Alpaca is known for its amazing swing, but if you want your fabric to keep its shape, a good dose of elastic, springy merino is important. Dos Tierras has achieved this beautifully with a 50% alpaca, 50% merino DK-weight blend! All Malabrigo's fine merino wool comes from Uruguayan sheep, but the baby alpaca comes from Peru, so Malabrigo created Dos Tierras (which means 'two lands') as homage to these two beautiful countries!
