    Malabrigo Rastita

    It's Rastita from Malabrigo, Rasta's little cousin! Rastita is the same so-soft, slightly fulled 100% merino wool, but in a versatile DK weight. You'll fall in love with Rastita's radiant hand-dyed hues and 300+ yds/hank. Rastita is perfect for finer-gauge projects that show off those unmistakeable Malabrigo colors. Made in Uruguay.

    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.

    Please note: Malabrigo Rastita is produced in dye lots of 5. Any order for more than 5 skeins will be of mixed dye lots.

        I am using rastita to make a simple, drapey shawl and it is a perfect weight and variegated color for that. A real pleasure to work with.

          Comments about Malabrigo Rastita:

          I made a shawlette for my grandmother with the colorway Marte. The yarn was a joy to work with and glowed with Malabrigo's signature staurated colors. The finished object was wonderfully soft and hid my little mistakes, and in the final blocking the yarn held the lace points nicely. I have yet to see how it holds up over time, but I have no complaints!

            I bought this yarn to use to make a special surprise gift for an aunt. The color was spectacular and the yarn was very soft. It works up nicely and was a pleasure to work with. I knit the "Age of Steam and Brass" shawl from Ravelry and had enough yarn to extend the pattern just a little. It turned out to be the perfect size and my aunt loves it! I would use this yarn again in a heartbeat.

                Comments about Malabrigo Rastita:

                I love Malabrigo yarns. The colors are stunning, and the end result is unique. I am using Mostaza. The yarn changes color in different lighting. In artificial light, the greens take over, and the color is sort of a military green effect. In sunlight, the yellows take over, and the green becomes more of a chartreuse. It is stunning! I am knitting a sweaterdress, and couldn't be more pleased. The yarn handles beautifully, slips easily and does not split.

                Service and delivery comments:

                LOVE Webs! Great customer service and quick shipping. This is a wonderful company!

                        I used one skein for a crescent shawl and it is perfect: the stitch definition is amazing, the color is amazing and the feel of the yarn on the needles is amazing. Can't go wrong here.

                            I'm using this Malabrigo yarn for a sweater. It's a great mid-weight and the variegated colors are lovely. I've used the worsted weight in the past and found it equally satisfactory.

                              The yarn is wonderfully soft and knits up quickly, but I'm really not in love with the colors. I purchased the yarn in glitter and chircas, and the colors are very dull. I think the color swatches that are put up should be corrected to give a more accurate depiction. If it wasn't for the softness and quality of the yarn, I'd probably give a negative review because I was disappointed.

                                I haven't finished knitting with this yarn yet, but so far I love working with Rastita. The lotus colorway is gorgeous and the yarn is very soft. I can tell the garment will have a nice drape. I might not use this yarn for something "crisp", but for my pattern it's lovely.
