Malabrigo Yarns

Malabrigo Rios

This 100% merino wool yarn is machine washable. It knits between 4.5 - 5 sts/inch on a 7-8 needle.

Featuring the lovely Malabrigo colors but in a plied yarn that will wear well and not pill (in case you experienced the worsted Malabrigo and were disappointed in how it pilled so quickly).

The hat shown below uses just 1 skein. The pattern is sent free with the yarn purchase. What I love about this pattern is that you can double over the brim if you want extra warmth around the ears and you have a close fitting toque - OR - you can not double the ribbed brim and wear it back on the forehead for a slouch. The pattern is easy to knit and once established, you can just look to the row below to see what you need to do next so no need to keep the pattern in front of you and count row by row!

If you're looking for a lighter weight, we also stock Malabrigo Arroyo (d.k.) and Mecha (3-3.5 /inch) and Rasta (2/inch) and Malabrigo Sock - which is really a sock weight, but has no nylon.An d finally, Mechita.
