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!

      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.

              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.

                      This yarn is super soft and amazing, but its Malabrigo, so I didn't expect anything less. It's just like the worsted weight except in DK. Beautiful yarn.
