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

        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.

          Best Uses

          • Used For A Slouchy Hat

          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.

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Gorgeous Subtle Colors
          • Great stitch definition
          • Soft as butter

          Cons

          • Colors Not True Online

          Best Uses

          • Modular Knitting

          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.

                          Comments about Malabrigo Arroyo:

                          The last 3 projects I've knit have been in Arroyo, it's just that good. Color is distributed evenly, no pooling, and the yarn wears well with little pilling. Price and yardage considered it's an excellent value for hand-dyed yarn and I highly recommend it.

                          Comments about Malabrigo Arroyo:

                          I'll use it for a 'knit-one below' colorwork garment, together with a related solid color.
                          My hands have never held a yarn so entirely pleasant to the touch and delightful to work with. It's miracle, truly.
                          So far, I can't imagine anything 'not so great' except perhaps the price,
                          BUT IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY (!)

                          I made a cowl with intricate stitch patterns. This yarn showed stitches very well, but also showed mistakes well, too. I enjoyed easiness of knotting and softness. The color is beautiful. I have never knitted socks, but it may knit well with this yarn.
