Malabrigo | Rios

NZ$29.00 inc GST



Malabrigo Rios yarn is the brand’s workhorse, a worsted weight superwash merino yarn. It’s smooshy, soft and has great stitch definition.

Knitters and crocheters love it because it’s “gorgeous,” “plump” and “deliciously soft” with a “silky texture” and “great colour progression.” And yet it “holds up well” even if you have to tear out your stitches and re-knit! One knitter said “The variations in the color create really unique patterns for one of kind items.” And several fibre artists say that the colour variation serves to give cables and other stitches even more depth.

If you like the idea of Malabrigo but are looking for a worsted weight yarn, try Malabrigo Mechita!

Malabrigo Rios Colour Notes

It’s dyed in lots of ten skeins and coloration can vary from lot to lot. If you order multiple skeins we’ll do our best to make sure they are part of the same dye lot.

Malabrigo Rios Patterns

The free Autopilot cowl pattern by Dominique Trad  “is just about enjoying the yarn and doing some relaxed knitting,” according to the designer. While it may be simple, the eyelets and mesh elevate this design.

Susan Ashcroft designed the Seeking Solace bandana and shawl to be both relaxing and an interesting knit. You won’t need to count lots of stitches, but slipped stitches and cables keep it fun.

The Montrealer hooded sweater pattern was named after Designs by Diaz’s home city. It is a unisex sweater with a raglan sleeve, stripes and a front pocket.

About Malabrigo

Malabrigo began in a kitchen in Uruguay in 2005, with two brothers-in-law hand-dyeing yarn in a pot on the stove. Ever since, they’ve been known for their high-quality yarns, mostly made from Uruguayan wool.
