Actual yarn color may vary based on your monitor or device. Hand-dyed yarns may vary from skein to skein; consider alternating skeins on large projects.
Soft, strong, and washable, Malabrigo Rios is 4-ply yarn and can be 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 our yarns, it’s super soft and great for next-to-the-skin wear! Spun from our premium superwash merino, it comes in an array of watercolor-multi, semi-solid, and variegated colorways.
Great for: Accessories, garments, baby and kids items, housewares, toys, cables, textured stitches, color-work.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. Skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
The colors shown in photos are illustrated as a reference; they can differ on more or less of one tone, due to the hand-dyed process.
