      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.

        Comments about Malabrigo Rasta:

        I am in love with this yarn. The colors are brilliant,the yarn is super soft, it knits up quickly, and with one hank you can knit up a stunning scarf. The only downside is that due to its popularity they run out of stock quickly. My advice is if you see the color you want is available purchase it immediately because tomorrow it probably won't be there.

              I'd have to say this is currently my all time favorite yarn in so many ways...my only disappointment is that most of the rasta is backordered and I'm told takes many weeks for restocking...I guess many others must love this yarn too...haha!

              I LOVE this yarn, it be jammin'...

                  This yarn does all the work. The simplest of patterns looks gorgeous because the colors are so nice. I've had numerous complements on a simple cowl made with this yarn. I'd like to make several more!

                      I received 3 skeins of this yarn in the same die lot and they were WORLDS apart from each other. Not impressed at all, and WEBS shouldn't have sent them out that way.

                        I haven't actually made anything with this yarn yet, so I can't speak to how it wears, but the colors are absolutely beautiful and the yarn itself is nice and soft and fluffy. I'm excited to use it.

                              The color is stunning, the yarn is so soft. I am a self taught, somewhere in the low to intermediate range skilled knitter. This yarn was easy to use and looks beautiful. I made a cowl for my mother-in-law for christmas that I know she will love.
