    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.

        Making a cardigan with my Rios and it's a complete joy to work with -- it feels good in my hands, it shows off stitch definition beautifully, and the color shifts are wonderful (I bought Candombe).

            I haven't used Malabrigo in a while, and am glad that I'm back to it. The color and the tonal quality are fantastic, and it knits up so well--shows cables crisply while being very soft.

            Comments about Malabrigo Rios:

            First, I LOVE this yarn. It was incredible to work with, and soooo soft. I crochet in public places, and was often approached by people who wanted to touch it! Just gorgeous. That said, the color I received looked nothing like the photo on the website. I ordered Candombe, which appeared to be greens/purples/blues in the photo but was greens/browns/black when it arrived (no blues, almost no purple). I definitely liked the color more after I worked it up, but was disappointed that it wasn't closer to what was pictured. I made a beautiful clutch with it, but I recommend that buyers be open-minded about the colors (if you need it to look exactly like the photo, I'd be prepared to return). All's well that end's well.
