        • Used For A Slouchy Hat

        Comments about Malabrigo Arroyo:

        I used this yarn for a very cool slouchy hat pattern for men. I've knitted using the Plomo and the Chircas. The Plomo had too much of a purplish tint to it and the hat was handed over to my son's girlfriend. The Chircas was perfect though.. beautiful green variation. Would definitely purchase this yarn again.

        Comments about Malabrigo Arroyo:

        I used this for a modular afghan and LOVED the wide color variation--even in the same dye lots. The colors blend better than any other hand-dyed I've used & I've used lots of them! Have machine washed AND dried finished projects and they came out perfectly.

                        The last 3 projects I've knit have been in Arroyo, it's just that good. Color is distributed evenly, no pooling, and the yarn wears well with little pilling. Price and yardage considered it's an excellent value for hand-dyed yarn and I highly recommend it.

                        Comments about Malabrigo Arroyo:

                        I'll use it for a 'knit-one below' colorwork garment, together with a related solid color.
                        My hands have never held a yarn so entirely pleasant to the touch and delightful to work with. It's miracle, truly.
                        So far, I can't imagine anything 'not so great' except perhaps the price,
                        BUT IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY (!)

                        I made a cowl with intricate stitch patterns. This yarn showed stitches very well, but also showed mistakes well, too. I enjoyed easiness of knotting and softness. The color is beautiful. I have never knitted socks, but it may knit well with this yarn.

                              Again, problems choosing colors online. The dyelots you receive may not look anything at all like online photos. I returned the 1st color but did keep the 2nd choice. It's kind of like gambling.........

                                  I knit a sweater for my daughter and it is gorgeous - she does not like anything scratchy and this yarn is anything but! The colors are gorgeous and I have used Malabrigo before with excellent results. Depending on the color variation, sometimes I use alternating skeins. This is the fourth sweater I have made using Malabrigo - all have gotten an abundance of compliments.
