Soft, strong, and washable, this 4-ply yarn is our workhorse! The plies help resist pilling and washability makes it fantastic for frequently-worn garments, housewares, and children and baby clothes. And like all our yarns, it’s super soft and great for next-to-the-skin wear! Spun from our premium superwash merino, it comes in an array of watercolor-multi, semi-solid, and variegated colorways. Approximately 210 yards/100 gram ball, 4.5-5.5 stitches per inch on a US 6-8 needle.
Great for: Accessories, garments, baby and kids items, housewares, toys, cables, textured stitches, colorwork.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag of 10 is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. The skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
This yarn is beautiful and wonderfully silky. I'm spoiled and will have to use it often.
I love the yarn, it works up easily. My problem is that I purchased 5 skeins and they knit up in different color ways. I am knitting a prayer shawl and the first 17 inches area bright, with some red areas, the second was mostly dark greens, removed that and the third try is primarily pastels. I will be visiting the store to see what help I can get. Two have been unraveled. I do like the yarn. I’m sure the dying which makes so unique has something to do with it. See you soon, Marcia Milani
Hello Marcia, Thank you for coming into the store so we could help you with your project! I am confident that the solution we came up with will look beautiful worked up into your prayer shawl. I am certain the 5 skeins alternated throughout the shawl every 10 rows will create a mosaic painterly effect, hiding the variation between the skeins beautifully! We love Malabrigo too, being that it's hand dyed no two skeins tend to look exact. This allows room for extra creativity! I hope what we discussed is working out for you, come see us if not. Otherwise, can't wait to see the finished shawl! - Artsy
Thid is great yarn to crochet with.I love the softness and the colors.
Malabrigo Rios is one of my all-time favorite yarns. It is reasonably priced and is such nice quality that I keep coming back to it again and again.
Havent moved past the stare touch and pet phase as of yet. it is quite soft and once i find a worthy project im sure it will be lovely
