    wow I LOVE this yarn .If I could afford it, I would make everything from here on out from this yarn. So soft and thick and the depth of the colors-- I got piedras and its amazing the range of colors within it, all the shades and speckled tones of ripening fruit. It doesnt fray or shed like some single ply supers you can even pull out and reknit several times and no shedding or fuzzies AT ALL, stays smooth and shiny.

    I wanted this yarn after seeing a project made with it at my local yarn store, but the yarn I received barely looks like the same colorway I first saw in the store. Color is much duller.

      Comments about Malabrigo Rasta:

      This wool looks just stunning when knitted in a rib. Perfect stitch definition and each stitch is a different colour but within the same colour range so it looks blended perfectly. It makes for very warm scarves and hats too for extra cold weather.

        I have been knitting and crocheting for years. At last, I've come to my senses and realize that when you put so much of yourself and your time, one should really use
        exceptional yarn.

            Gorgeous yarn that's a pleasure to knit. I've used it for two 1-skien projects, and one 2-skien project. A bit pricier than my normal purchases but worth it.

                I used this to make quick-knit cowls for the ladies in my family for Christmas. The colors worked up absolutely beautifully. The girls all love the softness.

                  I used this yarn for a seedstitch cowl for a christmas present. The color was GORGEOUS (Teal Feather) as was the finished object. My mother loves it and if I am ever again in a pinch for a present, this will be my go-to yarn for a similar cowl. It's a bit awkward to work with if it's your first time using a yarn this bulky as it was for me but adjusting the way you knit a bit will fix that right up. Wouldn't knit this continental style.

                      This Rasta yarn is a difficult weight to find and match up with the pattern I want to use it in. I was VERY pleased to find it in WEBS and the c0lors are as they say breathtaking.
                      Pleased with product and knits up quickly and fun!
