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.

        Have used this Rasta before and found it to knit up into a lovely, soft garment. My daughter requested that I use the yarn again, he loved the first project so much.

            Comments about Malabrigo Rasta:

            Love the feel and texture and was very easy to knit with but was disappointed with the colour. I ordered this colour because it was featured in the knitting pattern and was bright and colourful however when it arrived it was much duller then the picture. I am aware each dye lot is different but this was very different.

                  Comments about Malabrigo Rasta:

                  The first super bulky yarn I like for knitting up quick hats and mittens that are warm, soft and pleasing to the eye. Super bulky yarns on large needles tend to lack a solid warmth because of gaps in the large stitches but this yarn snugs together nicely and eventually felts from wear. It also has a quality look often lost in big simple knits. Cables show up nicely and the color choices are fabulous. I will definitely buy more.

                  Comments about Malabrigo Rasta:

                  I knit up a quick, brightly colored sweater jacket using this yarn and my normally wool-averse daughter thought it was so soft and cuddly she asked to knit her own sweater from it. It's the first time she's wanted to knit a full project since she learned to knit, so I'm really pleased that the yarn was so inspiring.
