New in store: Malabrigo Rasta! October 1, 2015 – Posted in: New in Store, Online store, Project Ideas


A new addition to our shop this Fall – Malabrigo Rasta. If you love instant-gratification, then this super-bulky yarn is for you!

From the Malabrigo website: “A lightly-fulled single-ply yarn of magnum proportions! Whip out a super-cozy accessory in just hours with this super-sized delight of a yarn. Our premium Uruguayan merino is just as soft as ever, and Rasta comes in a range of our unique ?watercolor multi? colorways as well as a rainbow of semi-solid basics. Unbelievably squishy, this is the yarn to turn to when you want the ultimate in warmth (or the ultimate in speed!).”

Great for: Quick knits, textured stitches, hats, cowls, scarves, outerwear.

Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

Shop / browse Malabrigo Rasta on our online store.
