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.

    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!
