Malabrigo Arroyo – special price this week only

Looking for a machine washable sport-weight yarn that doesn’t feel gross? Check out Malabrigo Arroyo Yarn! This is a durable, plied superwash that is already a trusted go-to for knitters everywhere. For those of you familiar with Malabrigo Rios Superwash Merino Wool Yarn, you might think of Arroyo as the sport-weight kid sister, a lighter weight version of that yarn.

Great for babies, accessories, and lightweight garments, Arroyo is super versatile. And in case you’re wondering, it’s definitely soft enough to wear against your skin. Available in an array of beautiful tonal and multi-colors, this yarn fits right in with the rest of the beautiful Malabrigo family.

So what should you make with it? Well, Malabrigo has a few super cute patterns for Arroyo, like this Trenzado cardigan from Malabrigo Book 4:

This cardigan has a wonderfully flattering shape, and it’s a nice way to show off the color variations this yarn is known for. If you’re looking for something a little smaller, take a gander at this Sullivan cowl from Malabrigo Book 5 - In Soho:

Adorable.  Just adorable. And perfect for the chilly months ahead! Carrying the yarn along the back for all the colorwork adds a little extra insulation, making this a warm little project. A few other patterns that I think would be awesome in Arroyo are the  [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] and the  [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] .

The possibilities are nearly endless with this yarn, really. It’s strong enough for every day use, soft enough even for babies, and machine washable. It’s also on sale for 10% off from now until next Friday, December 23…  I guess the only question remaining is, what will you make?

      Hi Louise,
      The cowl you’re looking for is called the Sullivan Cowl and it is in Malabrigo Book 5 – In Soho. We love how they’ve used the color changes in the yarn to create the sky, and it’s a nice way to approach color work without making something really complicated or time consuming. The book is in stock now and there are several other great designs in there too! Have fun making the cowl, and please let us know if there’s anything else we can do for you!
