Malabrigo Arroyo is a soft and sturdy plied sport-weight yarn in a range of semi-solid and hand dyed colorways. Spun from luxurious superwash merino, it is very comfortable to wear next to the skin and it is machine washable.
Be sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project. As with all hand dyed yarns, dye lots are very small and not as consistent as machine dyed yarns.
With all multi-colored hand dyed yarns, such as Malabrigo Arroyo, each skein is unique. Therefore, we recommend that you work from two balls of yarn at once to ensure random color distribution, alternating every row or two from each ball. This short video will show you how to alternate your yarns.
