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.

To give you an idea of what you can do with Malabrigo Rastita, have a look at this Customer Spotlight on our blog.

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, and the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

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 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!

      After hearing all the raves about Malabrigo, I was anxious to try it. Glad I did! Color was amazing, and SO soft; excellent stitch definition was an added bonus.

        This yarn is super soft and amazing, but its Malabrigo, so I didn't expect anything less. It's just like the worsted weight except in DK. Beautiful yarn.

                Comments about Malabrigo Rastita:

                I have as yet not started my planned project with this yarn. It is not the color I expected. I wound one ball and made a swatch. Overall it is darker with less variation than I expected from the online photo and not what I would name "Peacock" so I am disappointed.
