So I finally got my hands on some lovely Malabrigo! I recently moved from Buffalo, where my LYSs didn’t carry it, to Boston, where I found it at the first LYS I went to. Now I know what everyone has been raving about.
But my recent purchase was a bit mysterious. I found a gorgeous hank of purple/lilac/gray/green labeled “Pearl.” It was the only one on the shelf, but the super helpful salesgal said she thought they had more in back and she checked. Turns out that all the other hanks labeld “Pearl” were much much lighter, almost white, not anything like my hank. Then we noticed that the dye lot date on the label was from May 2005. She figured that this one hank was left over from the first shipment that the store got, over a year ago.
So what I’m wondering is:
- Does anyone know whether the color of “Pearl” has changed?
- Is my hank simply mis-labeled, and if so what color is this?
Thanks for any input!
