Rios Worsted by Malabrigo

About this Item

Rio means "river" in Spanish. Malabrigo Rios is named after the four major rivers in Uruguay: Rio Cuareim, Rio Uruguay, Rio de la Plata, and Rio Negro. Each river is represented by one ply. These plies twist together like winding rivers. Rios also signifies the yarn's washability; for millennia, rivers have provided water for washing garments.

To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

Skeins that have dye lots include their dye lot number in the color option; those skeins without dye lots will have no dye lot listed.

This yarn is ready to ship from our studio to your favorite knitting chair.
