            Comments about Malabrigo Arroyo:

            I purchased 2 skeins and didn't use them until November as I was really unsure what to do with a sportweight yarn (I've been working with fingering weight for most of the year). However, as soon as I cast on a hat, it was immediately clear that Arroyo is unique and wonderful. A month later I purchased 6 more skeins!

            It has amazing stitch definition and a lot of that has to do with what a full and plump sport weight it is. I can think of no other yarn in dk or sport weights that has such bounce and maintains it after washing and blocking. It's also wonderful for winter items for when a worsted hat or cowl can become too warm. It's fantastic as a 3-season weight or for those working or coming and going indoors and outdoors who don't want to remove clothing each time.

            The item I kept which I made is a simple hat in the English Rose colorway and I receive questions and compliments each time I wear it. Everyone so far has assumed it has silk or chenille fibers in it since it does have a slight and beautiful sheen.

            The only downside is a couple of colorways I had wanted have been out of stock everywhere for several months. Malabrigo has an absolute winner here!

            Service and delivery comments:

            Customer service was wonderfully nice about my calling to add a few more skeins since the order had not been shipped yet and they did an expert job of matching skeins.

                  Looks great knit up, feels soft and is very nice to knit with. So far can't think of anythings that aren't so great about it. Would definitely buy again.

                  I used this for a DK scarf, and it's wondrously soft. The colors are vibrant as to be expected with Malabrigo colorways.

                    Comments about Malabrigo Arroyo:

                    I made a ski hat for my son with this yarn. It knit up quickly with no problems and was soft and easy to work with. I would recommend it for winter accessories like scarves and hats. I have no experience with it for anything larger.

                      Comments about Malabrigo Arroyo:

                      I used this yarn for a very cool slouchy hat pattern for men. I've knitted using the Plomo and the Chircas. The Plomo had too much of a purplish tint to it and the hat was handed over to my son's girlfriend. The Chircas was perfect though.. beautiful green variation. Would definitely purchase this yarn again.

                      Comments about Malabrigo Arroyo:

                      I used this for a modular afghan and LOVED the wide color variation--even in the same dye lots. The colors blend better than any other hand-dyed I've used & I've used lots of them! Have machine washed AND dried finished projects and they came out perfectly.
