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!  Made in Uruguay.

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, and the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

Please note: Malabrigo Rasta is produced in dye lots of 5. Any order for more than 5 skeins will be of mixed 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 Yarn > Knitting Yarn Rasta:

    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.

                Using Rasta as both the main color and contrasts for a version of Stephen West's "Outer Space" sweater pattern. Rasta is lighter weight than expected for a chunky, and makes a great main color, and supports very well the more delicate one-of-a-kind "art yarns" I've been collecting for the "Outer Space" stripes.

                    Knitting a throw. It's gorgeous yarn and easy to knit with. No splitting, use size 15 needles, and am thoroughly happy with the results. Dyed nicely, colors are saturated and beautiful. I would and do use this yarn for the warmest scarves, so soft!
