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. Malabrigo Rios yarn is their 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.

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.

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