I have used Rasta to make shawls, hats and a big chunky sweater. I love how soft it is and how fast and easy it is it knit. Like all Malabrigo yarns, the colors are vibrant and beautiful. They seem to be more vibrant in the single plys (Rasta, Mecha, Worsted, Rastita). I can't recommend this enough.

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 Malabrigo Rasta:

      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.

            This knit up into a lovely pillow using 2 skeins. It doesn't need a fancy stitch because the colors are gorgeous. It also knits up well into a cowl, including using a lace design and adding a lighter weight yarn for contrast.

              Comments about Malabrigo Rasta:

              I adore Rasta, simple as that. My absolute go-to for every type of super-bulky project. The colors are just amazing, the texture and loft are great, the consistency is superb (VERY little "thick and thin", if any. Hard to find in a single super-bulky!), and it is so soft and warm - makes the greatest super-bulky quick mittens ever! I have made a pair for almost everyone I know because they are such a great, easy, and QUICK present! Also made a color-block throw with it, and I can't express the softness and warmth in a description. It's the first one grabbed for on cool fall and cold winter days. I buy it every chance I get.

                I knit really quick hats from this amazing yarn. If I could use only one yarn for the rest of my life, this would be THE YARN. It feels so good! The color choices are excellent. An affordable luxury.
