Malabrigo Rios Superwash Merino Wool Yarn description:
The wonderful feel of Malabrigo Merino yarn in a worsted weight superwash. The rich kettle-dyed colors you've come to love from Malabrigo in a more durable plied, and easy to care for superwash yarn. Now there's a truly luxurious variegated yarn you can use for really special kids' garments. Or, knit, crochet, or weave into truly amazing throws without the worry of how to deal with them after they've had a spill or snuggle with a favorite pet.
NOTE: The kettle-dyeing technique used on Rios causes every skein to be slightly different and dyelots may be drastically different. Please keep this in mind when using Rios. Consider working from two skeins at a time alternately to even out the beautiful variations and avoid color pooling or striping.
We have some suggestions!
