      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 had high hopes for this yarn -- it is Malabrigo -- but am disappointed overall. It feels like it's been overprocessed if that makes sense (think overprocessed hair). The two hanks I ordered took over an hour to wind because they were so tangled. The yarn doesn't have any body or sheen at all. Knitted fabric is nice at first but my washed swatch had no life to it. It's like this was a fine wool but all the life has been taken out of it.

        Kitting sweaters, scarves, hats.
        The yarn knits quick, good to the touch
        I have found some places that the yarn is really thick. 6 or 7 stitches worth.

            I needed one extra skein of this yarn to complete a jumper. Knitting with two balls at once, the differnce in the skeins was not obvious.
            I love how Rios is so soft and flows so well.

              I used this yarn for hats and scarves. My friend used it for a child's sweater. It is beautiful and easy to knit. I love knitting with this yarn and will purchase more as often as I can if it is in stock.

              I am still waiting for one skein that is back ordered. I noticed that most colors are back ordered, I hope they don't discontinue the yarn. It is my favorite.

              Fantastic yarn, magnificent colors ,wonderful to work with. Be aware that the yarn in person is much more beautiful than the photo representations on the website. Very hard to choose a color, so be prepared to buy all that you like

              Service and delivery comments:

              My only disappointment is that Malabrigo isn't able to keep up with the demand causing many of the colors to be on back order for very long periods of time. As always, delivery and customer service are top notch.

                Comments about Malabrigo Rios:

                I have to agree with one of the other reviewers that the color is not what appears in the photo. When my order arrived and I opened the bag I was surprised at the colorway that I ordered as "browns" are not my usual color choice. I ordered the "Pocion" and what I received, yes, it is Pocion but it is not anything like what is pictured. I did keep it tho because I had a cowl pattern I really wanted to work on. I like working with the Rios, it feels nice in my hands, but I was/am a little disappointed that the color was quite different than what I expected. It will make a nice gift for someone else.

                    I use it to knit blankets for family members. It knits up relatively fast with 13 or 15 needles. Everyone likes the softness.

                      The colorway is intense and gorgeous! But there is so much color variability between skeins in the same dye lot I worry it looks badly faded within the garment before its even worn. To help with this, I purchased more than i need, selecting the skeins that match the best, then I knit alternate rows with 2 skeins that look different so is just smaller areas of variation
