Malibu Plus by Katia is a thin cotton tape that has small dots of color in acrylic along the skein. This means that while you knit, specks of color appear that give a marbled touch to your garments.
These skeins dots of color have a change in the composition of the yarn, with more relief. That generates a modification in the tape's thickness that will make that your t-shirts have a blend of tweed and an embossed effect.
These Katia yarn balls are ideal for knitting cool and cheerful summer garments. The effect that Malibu Plus has in your garments makes it ideal for knitting summer vests, youthful tops, and fun child garments.
Malibu Plus mercerized cotton tape is light and can be knitted with 4.5 - 5 mm needles.
Being mercerized, this yarn has a subtle shine that will make your cotton garments look more luminous and with a satinated feel. Mercerization is a chemical process that cotton undergoes to make it more resistant. In this process, the cotton becomes stronger and gets the ability to absorb the pigments better in the dyeing process, which is why mercerized cottons like Katia Malibu Plus have more vivid and saturated colors, an ideal feature for youthful clothes.
To knit a short-sleeved t-shirt in size L, you will need approximately 4 skeins of Malibu Plus. For a child t-shirt, you will need 3 yarn balls. Remember that this is only an estimation and that your own tension, chosen stitch, and kind of pattern may modify the calculation. A tension swatch will help you get a better idea of the number of skeins you need and see how this texturized yarn will look once knitted.
The color speckles of this yarn are displayed on white and solid color bases. Choose what you like the most or combine them.
