My order from Handpainted came in today: is the maker/supplier of Malabrigo yarns.

These are what's inside:
(pardon the airbrushing attempt)

The fuschia skein is 100% alpaca. The orangey skein is Merino bulky (somewhat similar to Malabrigo worsted).

The blue skein is 2-ply wool, sport weight. The orange skein is bulky Merino.

The chocolate/cherry roving on the left is super soft Merino while the multi colored green/yellow yarn is Ejido, 100% Peruvian wool that only costs $5.10 per skein (160 yards). Amazing!

I wanted to try their yarns for future designs. We'll see.
