I purchased 2 skeins and didn't use them until November as I was really unsure what to do with a sportweight yarn (I've been working with fingering weight for most of the year). However, as soon as I cast on a hat, it was immediately clear that Arroyo is unique and wonderful. A month later I purchased 6 more skeins!

It has amazing stitch definition and a lot of that has to do with what a full and plump sport weight it is. I can think of no other yarn in dk or sport weights that has such bounce and maintains it after washing and blocking. It's also wonderful for winter items for when a worsted hat or cowl can become too warm. It's fantastic as a 3-season weight or for those working or coming and going indoors and outdoors who don't want to remove clothing each time.

The item I kept which I made is a simple hat in the English Rose colorway and I receive questions and compliments each time I wear it. Everyone so far has assumed it has silk or chenille fibers in it since it does have a slight and beautiful sheen.

The only downside is a couple of colorways I had wanted have been out of stock everywhere for several months. Malabrigo has an absolute winner here!

This is not the arroyo I know and love! Very splitty and thin, hopelessly difficult knit, but the worst problem is that it crocked (or bled) all over my hands. After knitting only five rounds, my fingers are stained black; this color did not come off after soaking in the tub and scrubbing it. As I planned to use it in a multicolor scarf, it's unusable because it would bleed onto the other colors and onto my neck and onto my clothes. I'll return the one skein that hasn't been wound. I guess I'll have to eat the other one, but I sure am unhappy! I do not expect products of this quality to be marketed by your company. And shame on malabrigo!

            I am using this yarn for the first time and I was worried it is too variegated for a sweater, but it knits up so nicely! The color way I am knitting with is Azules, and yarn is gorgeous!

                          The yarn is very soft and just lovely. However, the color of the yarn is much darker than the website image. I was disappointed at first, but found that the color was still nice, it just wasn't suitable for my complexion. Knitted a sweater and gave it to my friend. I wish in addition to the images of yarn, a brief description was provided for each yarn. Would be a great help, at least for the more expensive yarns.

                                      I've only been knitting quasi-seriously for 4 years. I love ALL of the Malbrigo products. Arroyo is great yarn to have in your stash!
