Malabrigo Rios


Add to Cart

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. And like all of their yarns, it’s super soft and great for next-to-the-skin wear! Spun from Malabrigio's 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, colorwork.

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.  To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
