Malabrigo Rios

Malabrigo Yarn

Soft, strong, and washable, this 10-ply yarn is Malabrigo Yarns workhorse! The plies help resist pilling and washability makes it fantastic for frequently-worn garments, housewares, and children and baby clothes. And like all Malabrigo 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 colourways.

Great for: Accessories, garments, baby and kids items, housewares, toys, cables, textured stitches, colourwork.

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 colour distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
