Malibrigo is a family-owned yarn company located in Uruguay and Peru. The company started small, when two brothers-in-law started dyeing wool in a kitchen pot back in 2005.
The wool is 100 % produced by Uruguayan farms that allow their free - range sheep through the hills and are herded by actual old - style shepherds. The practice of mulesing does not exist in Uruguay.
Malabrigo employs mostly women of all ages, and always tries to give job opportunities to people that have fewer opportunities than the average.
