Soft, strong, and washable, this 4-ply yarn Malabrigo Rios is a workhorse! The plies help resist pilling and washability makes it fantastic for frequently-worn garments, housewares, and children and baby clothes. And like all Malabrigo yarns, it’s super soft and great for next-to-the-skin wear! Spun from premium superwash merino, it comes in an array of watercolor-multi, semi-solid, and variegated colorways.
Malabrigo is a family owned yarn company located in Uruguay and they have developed a line of Hand-Dyed yarns of incredible softness and wonderful color variations. Their products are made out of the softest fibers available and inspired by nature, as well as landscapes, places, art and day-to-day life. Malabrigo produces yarn because they are passionate about it. They believe in the pleasure of knitting with good-quality, carefully designed, subtly dyed yarns and in the joy of wearing whatever is made out of them. All of the wool produced in Uruguay is mulesing-free.
**Yarn is hand dyed, so you can expect variation from skein to skein. It is recommended that for larger projects in the same color, you should knit in stripes, alternating skeins every 2 rows.
