Product details

Malabrigo Rios is a great favourite with knitters around the world, and for good reason! Super soft, washable and knitting to a standard worsted weight, it is the perfect solution for knitting for children, babies and you! Rios has great stitch definition and a glorious array of colourways to choose from. It's hand-dyed in batches of up to ten skeins, so you may need to blend more than one dyelot, which may not be perceptibly different, together. Malabrigo yarn is hand-dyed, meaning that each beautiful skein is unique. As a result, there may be variations in colour between skeins of the same shade.

Wonderful yarn, have only knit a swatch with cables, but it holds stitch definition well, the color is deep and gorgeous, and it is soft, springy, yummy feeling to knit with, while still feeling like real wool. Not scratchy. Definitely a luxury yarn. I got color Cumparsita, a rich red with darker overtones, and the 7 skeins I got were remarkably similar for hand-dyed yarn. My only issue is that the dye does not sink all the way into the shaft of the yarn, so there are some white patches if the yarn snags or unravels a little, which do not go well with the color. I think this is a general problem with this type of dye process. But it feels so luxurious I would get it again. I'm hoping when I wash it for finishing, that the dye will seep deeper into the yarn shaft and fade or eliminate the white spots. We'll see....
