Rios Rio means ?river? in Spanish. Malabrigo Rios is named after the four major rivers in Uruguay. Each river is represented by one ply which twist together like winding rivers.

Available in many of your favorite Malabrigo colorways, Rios is a versatile and durable yarn you can use for just about any project! Soft, strong, and washable, this 4-ply yarn is our workhorse! The plies help resist pilling and washability makes it fantastic for frequently-worn garments, housewares, and children and baby clothes. And like all our yarns, it?s super soft and great for next-to-the-skin wear! Spun from our premium superwash merino, it comes in an array of watercolor-multi, semi-solid, and variegated colorways. This worsted weight 100% superwash merino wool is machine washable and so perfect for children and baby projects, garments, colorwork and of course projects for yourself too! 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. In the tagged (*) colors, the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
