Malabrigo Rios Superwash Wool Yarn is an excellent choice medium weight projects that need to be soft and squishy, but still durable. Accessories, home decor and full garments are great in Rios, especially items for kids or that will get a lot of wear, since this yarn is a superwash. The stretchy plied construction provides a nice hand and good stitch definition. The kettle-dyed colors range from elegant tonals to the rich hand-dyed multi-colors that Malabigo fans adore!
