It's Rastita from Malabrigo, Rasta's little cousin! Rastita is the same so-soft, slightly fulled 100% merino wool, but in a versatile DK weight. You'll fall in love with Rastita's radiant hand-dyed hues and 300+ yds/hank. Rastita is perfect for finer-gauge projects that show off those unmistakeable Malabrigo colors. Made in Uruguay.

To give you an idea of what you can do with Malabrigo Rastita, have a look at this Customer Spotlight on our blog.

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 Rastita 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 made a shawlette for my grandmother with the colorway Marte. The yarn was a joy to work with and glowed with Malabrigo's signature staurated colors. The finished object was wonderfully soft and hid my little mistakes, and in the final blocking the yarn held the lace points nicely. I have yet to see how it holds up over time, but I have no complaints!

    Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Rastita:

    I bought this yarn to knit a cowl, in Glitter. The photograph shows golden brown tones with gold highlights. The yarn I got is a tad darker than I expected but is gorgeous to wear. I love the golden spaces of the yarn among the brown. The yarn is easy to knit wig and easy to frog, doesn't tangle or fray. It's a beautiful miniature of Rasta. I love knitting with it. I think a sweater knitted with this yarn would be so sumptuous. That's the next project. And I would buy this color again. Always love Malabrigo yarn.

      Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Rastita:

      I purchased previously Malabrigo Rios, Rast a, and Worsted and loved them all - the colors are beautiful and the yarn is so soft, it'seems really a pleasure to knit! This is the first time I purchase Rast italy, I wanted a dk weight. Just like all other Malabrigo yarns, is wonderful - soft, nice stich definition, lovely color. Yes, it is expensive, but this is one of the very few places you can buy it at a discount!

          I love all the Malabrigo yarns I've tried, but Rastita is my favorite so far. Gorgeous color and so very soft. Very easy to knit. I highly recommend it.

            I made a sheep pocket scarf for a 4 year old. She loves it. It knit up quickly with this yarn, which was easy to work with.

              Beautiful yarn to work with, great stitch definition. You definitely do need to alternate skeins every few rows because of variation in colors from skein to skein, even when all from same dye lot.

                  Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Rastita:

                  I enjoyed knitting with this yarn and was very pleased with the it except I only ordered one skein initially since I wasn't sure if it would work for my project. Then I needed a second skein but the color was so different that I am not happy with the final result. I am going to try to over dye the second half of the scarf to see if I can bring the colors closer together. That is the reason for four stars instead of five. I would recommend this yarn to friends but I would warn them about the color variation.

                        After hearing all the raves about Malabrigo, I was anxious to try it. Glad I did! Color was amazing, and SO soft; excellent stitch definition was an added bonus.
