Rios is a tried and true staple. It’s a worsted-weight, super-soft, machine-washable, plied yarn that's perfect for sweaters and accessories alike. In fact, this is one of our favorite yarns for sweaters!
If there's someone in your life who worries that wool is too itchy, this is a good one to try to change their mind. Hats - no problem. Cowls and scarves - check. Baby wear - heck yeah.
Like all Malabrigo yarns, Rios is hand-dyed in small batches by artisan dyers. Particularly for variegated colors, skeins can vary from one to the next even within the same bag and can also vary, sometimes substantially, from what is pictured. Photographing each skein would be impossible, but we do our best to keep our eyes peeled for drastic deviation from the general color profile shown. Feel free to leave us notes at checkout to help us make sure you're happy!
Images may show more than one skein to give a sense of color variation and patterning. Ordering a quantity of 1 means you will receive 1 skein/ball.
This yarn is dyed by hand and will vary from skein to skein and batch to batch. Each one is an unique work of art full of subtle variation and beauty, so your skein will differ from the one pictured. To achieve the most even possible color distribution, consider alternating skeins while working your project.
Please buy enough for your entire project all at once. We will do our best to select skeins from the same dye lot or, if there is no dye lot, skeins that visually match. If you add multiple skeins of the same yarn to your cart you'll be prompted at checkout to select how to proceed if we have concerns about skeins matching.
While colors shown are accurate to the best of our ability, computer monitors and dye lots both vary so the skeins you receive may differ from what is shown.
