A superwash version of the classic Worsted Merino base. While remaining true to the original softness of worsted, we ‘washed it’ so you can too, allowing more freedom and ease of care.
Having the same weight as Worsted, it can be used interchangeably for any projects you may have planned for Worsted. Additionally, it is a single ply, so can be used in conjunction with Rios which is plied (having multiple plies spun together) to create an interesting texture story.
Like all Malabrigo's yarns, it is kettle-dyed in small batches by our artisan dyers and is full of subtle variation and beauty.
Accessories and garments, next-to-skin wear, cables, textured stitches, colorwork, anything where warmth and comfort are a factor!

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.
