Malabrigo Rios takes the incredible softness of Malabrigo's yarns and makes it machine washable! This plied yarn comes in rich, beautiful colors, and you won't have to worry about felting.

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 Rios is produced in dye lots of 10. Any order for more than 10 skeins will be of mixed dye lots.

I knit a sweater out of this yarn earlier this year. Oh. my. goodness. SO SOFT! And a gorgeous sheen. My swatch washed just fine and so did my sweater. I get compliments on it pretty much whenever I wear it.

One thing that was NOT nice: Winding the skeins. All 6 were tangled and 4 or 5 of them had knotted breaks. It took forever to wind and russian join them.

You know what, though? I totally plan on buying it again. It was worth the hassle of the winding in order to enjoy the loveliness of the knitting and the amazing softness of the FO. I love love love this yarn. One of my favorites to date.

I ordered 12 skeins and 30% or 4 skeins were not usable- the yarn was either not spun correctly or had small sections that were tied together. I had purchased this for an adult mermaid afghan and would have had numerous starts and stops if I had not wound all 12 skeins before starting the project. The good news is the awesome Customer Service I received from WEBS. I requested that they send me 4 replacement skeins after checking them to make sure they were of good quality. Not only did they do that but sent me a pre-paid label to send the four skeins back that were unacceptable. This is why I buy my yarn from WEBS.

          Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Rios:

          I purchased this yarn to make a gift for a friend who is always complaining of cold feet. Not only is the colorway beautiful, but the yarn is so soft and warm that I wish I could keep them for myself! This yarn knits up nicely and the couple of times I made a mistake I was able to rip back without any loss of stability in the yarn and without the fraying and catching that often occurs with a wool yarn. I am thinking about purchasing a different colorway to make something for myself!

          Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Rios:

          I made myself a pair of leg warmers. Each hank completed each side (I have long legs...). I noticed shortly before I finished the 2nd one that it was very different from the 1st one. It's quite a bit darker. So I took my 3rd hank & started making another one, see which one it matched. So the one I completely finished turned out to be "odd man out" So will completely rip out CAREFULLY & I suppose make a cowl or pair of gloves or something. It is close enough that with some distance between the 2 shades, it will look ok...I hope. I'm glad this was a set for me & not an order!

            I've ordered a LOT of this yarn. I was disappointed with one of the colors....this yarn was just one bland color of blue. No other hues or shades....not as pictured or described. I think I got a different Malabrigo yarn entirely as it didn't match up with the other Malabrigo Rios I ordered in the same package.

            bought a rainbow of this at Webs when it came out. I goto Webs usually without specific yarn in mind, rather weight/color/care.

            Seems I get Malabrigo yarn a lot and they had a shelf full of Rios

            Made the cutest rainbow sweater out of it. It's so warm, soft and squishy. Toddler sweater knitted up quickly, was fairly easy to redo sections (but only once there's some splitting).

            I machine washed on delicate by itself in my front loader and then laid out to dry (the spin gets it pretty dry). It seemed to have felted the tiniest bit and shrunk a bit too lengthwise. In my case it meant the sweater was perfect, I came out a little long. Next year they can wash and stretch it to shape for more wearing.

                I have made 2 afghans using this wool and they both turned out beautiful. However both were also darker than I expected. In fact the blue one looked almost black the entire time i was making it. It was only when I took it outside to photograph it that I saw all the color.

                  I wanted special yarn to make a gift for my brother and sister-in-law and the Malabrigio was perfect! It is a nice soft yarn, easy on the hands, works up quickly. I picked the Primavera color-way and was so pleased with the rich colors. I will make other items with Malabrigio.

                    Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Rios:

                    After spending over $160 on local, hand-dyed yarn to make a sweater, I decided to go with Malabrigo Rios on my next one. First off, this sweater will cost less than $70. Second, I don't have to worry about the color being drastically off - it's got a nice variation to it, but the skeins are consistent. The yarn is super soft, easy to work with, beautiful coloring, and I'm in love. I haven't finished the sweater yet, so I don't know how it'll wash up, but so far, so good!
