Malabrigo Rios is soft, strong, and washable This 4-ply yarn is a workhorse! The plies help resist pilling and washability makes it fantastic for frequently-worn garments, housewares, and children and baby clothes. And like all Malabrigo yarns, it’s super soft and great for next-to-the-skin wear! Spun from premium superwash merino, it comes in an array of watercolor-multi, semi-solid, and variegated colorways.
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 Rios, 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.
