Rialto Aran is an extra fine merino that is a dream to work with. This is a great yarn for those who enjoy working with a beautiful, classic yarn like a pure wool that retains all the softness of those fibres but has a practical element that makes it perfect for casual, every day wear. Rialto is an all season yarn, cool in summer, warm in winter, with a bounce and elasticity that makes it perfect for both the body hugging knits and the gently flared jackets. Made in Italy.
I just started a project with Rialto Aran and Rialto DK. This is the first time I've knitted with these yarns, and I am extremely impressed. The stitch definition is quite honestly the best I've ever seen- knitted piece looks very professional. Also the loft and bounce of this yarn is delightful, and the colors are gorgeous and look wonderful when combined. I'm using the teal for the MC with chocolate for the edging, and the colors are vivid and striking. HIGHLY recommended!!
