Malabrigo Yarns are hand-dyed in South America and reflect the passion and vibrance of its culture. Soft, strong, and washable, Malabrigo Rios, a 4-ply yarn, is their workhorse! The plies help resist pilling and washability makes it fantastic for frequently-worn garments, housewares, and children and baby clothes.
