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.

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!

        Comments about Malabrigo Rastita:

        It is lighter weight than I imagined. Am making a sweater from it and the thinness of the resulting fabric is a bonus in our mild Texas winters. It's one of those soft yarns you can't put down. I've had no snagging or splitting at all.

              Rastita is a pleasure to knit. The subtle color variations add interest to plain old stockinette with out creating a distraction from the fabric itself or shape of the garment.

                  I used this to make a shrug and I was afraid that the color bands would group and make a blotchy appearance in the garment. This did not happen and the resulting shrug was quite lovely!

                  This is beautiful yarn, very easy to work with. After having gotten a couple hanks of the Nomeolvides locally, I was hoping the photo on Webs wasn't what they were stocking - happy to say it wasn't. The lots I got from Webs were same as what I got locally: Very dark, "mysterious" blues & steel with subtle variegation. Beautiful!!

                  Great, prompt service. Love Webs!!
