Malabrigo Rios is a true favourite with knitters and crocheters worldwide. This super soft, washable merinos knits to a standard worsted/aran weight. Rios is the perfect solution for knitting for colourful clothes and accessories for children, babies and adults. It’s hand-dyed in batches of up to ten skeins, so you may have to blend more than one dyelot, we suggest you use 2 skeins and  alternate balls every 2 rows to make sure they blend together nicely.

Malabrigo yarn is hand-dyed, meaning that each beautiful skein is unique. As a result, there may be variations in colour between skeins of the same shade. It is also recommended to wash your garment with a little white vinegar  in the water to fix the colour.
