Rasta in Spanish means “dreadlock”, and is how Malabrigo refers in Spanish to a very thick cord like this yarn. Rasta is 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. This premium Uruguayan merino is just as soft as ever, and Rasta comes in a range of 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.
Although the supplier qualifies this yarn as a "#6 Super Bulky" I find that it frequently works for patterns calling for "#5 Bulky."

We attempt to select the best matched skeins for your order, but as this is a hand-dyed product, be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since skeins can vary widely between bulk shipments. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
