Hand dyed in Uruguay, many of Malabrigo’s yarns are named in Spanish, the local tongue, in terms referring to their thickness. Rasta in Spanish is a very thick cord, like this yarn. A lightly-fulled single-ply yarn of epic proportions! Whip out a super-cozy accessory in just hours with this super-sized delight of a yarn. The premium Uruguayan merino is just as soft as ever, and Rasta comes in a range of unique “watercolor multi” colorways as well as a rainbow of semi-solid basics. Unbelievably squishy, this is the yarn to turn to when you want the ultimate in warmth (or the ultimate in speed!)

Great for: Quick knits, textured stitches, hats, cowls, scarves, outerwear.

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 color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. When we dye our yarns, the same formula is used each time but every batch of yarn may vary. The differences from one dye lot to another can be very subtle, or extremely noticeable, specially on variegated yarns.

The colors shown on photos are illustrated as reference, as mentioned above, they can differ on more or less of one tone, due to the hand-dyed process.
