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.

    Deiicious, to hold and behold, flies through my fingers, would use it all the time if I could afford it. Bought some with Christmas money . Met it as the designated yarn for a design. That project turned out spectacular and I fell in love.

          Comments about Malabrigo Rios:

          I initially ordered this yarn because it was the recommended yarn in a pattern for fingerless gloves. Now, I'm hooked. The colorway is so beautiful and knits so soft, that I've ordered three more (other colors) and made gloves for friends.

          Comments about Malabrigo Rios:

          It is so hard to choose the color you want because they are all gorgeous. The yarn is a bit splitty, but if you use blunt bamboo needles, it'd not a problem. That's why we have all kinds of needles, right?

            I plan to knit a sweater with this yarn. I have already winded the yarn but I have yet to start it. I can say that the yarn is richly died and the feel is beautiful.
