I knit a sweater out of this yarn earlier this year. Oh. my. goodness. SO SOFT! And a gorgeous sheen. My swatch washed just fine and so did my sweater. I get compliments on it pretty much whenever I wear it.

One thing that was NOT nice: Winding the skeins. All 6 were tangled and 4 or 5 of them had knotted breaks. It took forever to wind and russian join them.

You know what, though? I totally plan on buying it again. It was worth the hassle of the winding in order to enjoy the loveliness of the knitting and the amazing softness of the FO. I love love love this yarn. One of my favorites to date.

I had high hopes for this yarn -- it is Malabrigo -- but am disappointed overall. It feels like it's been overprocessed if that makes sense (think overprocessed hair). The two hanks I ordered took over an hour to wind because they were so tangled. The yarn doesn't have any body or sheen at all. Knitted fabric is nice at first but my washed swatch had no life to it. It's like this was a fine wool but all the life has been taken out of it.

                Great service as always from WEBS! The RIOS worked great for the body of the sweater but the ribbing on the sleeves became very stretched out.

                      I bought this to use in a small shawl pattern with a lace edging. Came out beautifully. The lace was written for a yarn this weight and is a nice alternative to all the very fine lace yarns. Again, colorway Arco Iris was delicious.
