Malabrigo Rios

Malabrigo Rios takes the incredible softness of Malabrigo's yarns and makes it machine washable! This plied yarn comes in rich, beautiful colors, and you won't have to worry about felting.

Note: As with all hand-dyed yarns, colors vary from dye lot to dye lot. The yarn color you receive may look different than the color pictured below, and the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

Please note: Malabrigo Rios is produced in dye lots of 10. Any order for more than 10 skeins will be of mixed dye lots.

I knit a sweater out of this yarn earlier this year. Oh. my. goodness. SO SOFT! And a gorgeous sheen. My swatch washed just fine and so did my sweater. I get compliments on it pretty much whenever I wear it.

One thing that was NOT nice: Winding the skeins. All 6 were tangled and 4 or 5 of them had knotted breaks. It took forever to wind and russian join them.

You know what, though? I totally plan on buying it again. It was worth the hassle of the winding in order to enjoy the loveliness of the knitting and the amazing softness of the FO. I love love love this yarn. One of my favorites to date.

I had high hopes for this yarn -- it is Malabrigo -- but am disappointed overall. It feels like it's been overprocessed if that makes sense (think overprocessed hair). The two hanks I ordered took over an hour to wind because they were so tangled. The yarn doesn't have any body or sheen at all. Knitted fabric is nice at first but my washed swatch had no life to it. It's like this was a fine wool but all the life has been taken out of it.

      Yarn with colors can be discordant, but Rios has a sensitive melding that was a joy to see develop under my hands. I have now ordered several additional colors. My first was Primavera.

        I originally bought "Purple Mystery" which was a gorgeous variegated yarn. I then bought "Aguas" which was markedly variegated and didn't have nearly the "wow" factor in terms of color. I now plan to order either a gray or red.

          Comments about Malabrigo Rios:

          This yarn is a great all around yarn with one exception: it is usually dyed unevenly. I've knit several projects with this yarn and have noticed even projects from the same skein come out different colors. As long as you blend the yarns it shouldn't be very noticeable. This yarn is soft, plush and has great color ways to choose from. The color ways are good for men and women alike.

          Comments about Malabrigo Rios:

          One skein has interesting variation of colors, but second skein has odd clump of color not found in the first skein. This will make the scarf lopsided.
