Question about Malabrigo colors

I'm wanting to get some Malabrigo to try, but I'd love to get a colorway and a solid color for trim and I can't really tell what solids go with what colorways. Any suggestions for which solids match which colorways? Pictures of them knit up would be extra awesome.

TIA!!

Re: Question about Malabrigo colors

I malabrigo! You can never go wrong with natural trim

Mariposa w/natural trim:


I see a lot of people do 2 malabrigo cw's together and I always like the result. This isn't exactly with trim, but here's Azules and Zarzamora together:

I was seriously debating whether or not to sell my mariposa, but after your picture I think I must hang on to it. Will have a grandbaby within 5 years or so, and that natural trim with it is just gorgeous!!
