Ahh Malabrigo!

Ahh, Malabrigo, my favorite of all yarn lines. Today’s offering from Little Knits 12 days of Little Sales is Malabrigo Rios. My favorite yarn from my favorite manufacturer!

It’s going to be really hard for me to pass up an opportunity to get the lovely Rios at 20% off, but I might be helped by the fact that I snuck up to Little Knits sans toddler a weekend or two ago and snagged three skeins of Aguas.

Malabrigo Rios - Aguas

Rios is a fantastic yarn. It’s a worsted weight (4.5-5.5 stitches to an inch on U.S. size 6-8 needles), superwash, 100% merino wool. It is uber soft, squishy and cosy, and comes in many of Malabrigo’s always beautiful colors.

I’ve used Rios for a variety of projects, and it has held up well in all of them.

This hat (yes, another Thorpe, I know, I’m obsessed!) was knit over a year ago, and has held up amazingly well. Being worn all winter (which can drag on until June here in Seattle), and stuffed into a diaper bag along with toys and snacks and all associated detritus when not being worn, hardly affected it. When it got cold again this fall, I chose Rios again to knit up a new one, since he had grown out of this one.

Rios is fantastic for items worn against the skin. These Dashing mitts get a lot of wear and still look lovely!

If you’re looking for an uber soft worsted weight wool, Rios is unbeatable, and the fact that it’s superwash is icing on the (yarn) cake!

  1. The fingerless glove pattern is great. Where can I find that pattern, since there is nothing to link the picture to any information?

    1. Hi Pat! The pattern is Dashing, from Knitty.com. You can find the ravelry pattern link just above the photo! :)

      Thanks for stopping by!
