Malabrigo Rasta

Malabrigo Rasta is a super soft, super bulky yarn available in breath-taking colors! We're sure you'll love this as much as all of the other yarns from Malabrigo. Rasta must be touched!  Made in Uruguay.

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 Rasta is produced in dye lots of 5. Any order for more than 5 skeins will be of mixed dye lots.

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.

The past few times I've bought Rasta here the colors were so faded. Not at all like the picture. I love the yarn. It's my favorite. I've bought the same yarn at other stores and the colors are much more vibrant.

    Comments about Malabrigo Rasta:

    This knit up into a lovely pillow using 2 skeins. It doesn't need a fancy stitch because the colors are gorgeous. It also knits up well into a cowl, including using a lace design and adding a lighter weight yarn for contrast.

      Comments about Malabrigo Rasta:

      I adore Rasta, simple as that. My absolute go-to for every type of super-bulky project. The colors are just amazing, the texture and loft are great, the consistency is superb (VERY little "thick and thin", if any. Hard to find in a single super-bulky!), and it is so soft and warm - makes the greatest super-bulky quick mittens ever! I have made a pair for almost everyone I know because they are such a great, easy, and QUICK present! Also made a color-block throw with it, and I can't express the softness and warmth in a description. It's the first one grabbed for on cool fall and cold winter days. I buy it every chance I get.

        I knit really quick hats from this amazing yarn. If I could use only one yarn for the rest of my life, this would be THE YARN. It feels so good! The color choices are excellent. An affordable luxury.

          Comments about Malabrigo Rasta:

          I have used Rasta to make shawls, hats and a big chunky sweater. I love how soft it is and how fast and easy it is it knit. Like all Malabrigo yarns, the colors are vibrant and beautiful. They seem to be more vibrant in the single plys (Rasta, Mecha, Worsted, Rastita). I can't recommend this enough.

                  Delicious to knit. Some variation in colouration, alternate with two balls to avoid pooling.

                      I made the Polar Vortex cowl pattern from Ravelry. I made mine smaller than the pattern calls for because I wanted this super plush soft yarn closer to my neck.

                          I made hats and matching scarves for family Christmas presents with this yarn - 10 sets to be exact. Love the colors, weight, softness of this product. Only drawback - it is so popular that I have been back ordered for over a month on one color set.
