Malabrigo Rasta is a super soft, super bulky yarn in 100% Merino wool that's 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!  

Note: As with all hand-dyed yarns, colors may vary significantly from skein to skein, even within the same dye lot. The yarn color you receive may look different from the color pictured below. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

Malabrigo Rasta is produced in dye lots of 5. Any order for more than 5 skeins will be of mixed dye lots. Some colors do not have any dye lots.

I ordered this in Queyguay to make a cowl for my daughter-in-law who likes blues and gray and other cool colors. So you should see the problem. There are bits of blue, but overall, in person, my skein reads more copper. I LOVE the color, even though it is not at all what I needed or wanted. Still, I will knit it up and later try another colorway for the gift I mean to make.

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 22.00 Rasta:

    I used this yarn for weft as part of weaving projects, I have bought the black version in the past as well and there was no inconsistently in the color, and the varying shades of color in Abril were beautiful. The black was fully dyed through even when the yarn was separated. there was lighter shades of wool with the dye work in Abril when you separated the yarn, but that makes sense due to it being a varying color.

    I've used this in both a scarf and walling hanging, and I have no complaints with this yarn, it's some my favorite thick wool yarn I've worked with, It is spun enough to stay together but does unravel and can act more like roving if needed.

      Have used Rasta a lot, but I've just been diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis, and so far my meds haven't been enough to allow me to get back to knitting. It's now 4 months with o knitting.

        The owner of one of my LYS's (Local Yarn Stores) described Malabrigo Rasta as "knitter's crack" and I agree. It's outrageously addictive. A single strand bulky yarn that comes in outrageous colorways, I'd use it all the time if my budget allowed! A joy to work with and to look at.

          I used this yarn to knit a neck only scarf. Actually I needed two balls, but made do with one. Next time I will order two and if I don't need two, I will make something else from it.
          I love to work with this yarn.

            Knitted a beautiful cardigan. Unfortunately all skeins were not the same dye lot. I was so eager to knit with this awesome yarn that I didn't notice 2 different lots. I had to order this yarn because there isn't a yarn shop within 60 miles.

              The yarns did not appear as they were photographed, as far as dye lots. But they were beautiful all the same and since I only needed one skein per hat, they each knitted up just fine. The Rasta yarns is soft, beautiful and the hats were a great hit!

                Super soft yarn with a nice drape! Used knitting needle US15 to create simple hats and it turned out great! The yarns are dyed with a few color variations which creates an interesting play and depth in color making each knitted piece unique. The texture is very soft and dense which provides good drape and structure. I loved working with this yarn! Will definitely create more projects with it.
