Malabrigo Arroyo Yarn - 870 Candombe
870 Candombe shown $18.40
We are all in love with Arroyo yarn! With it's generous yardage (335) and super wash properties it will quickly become your favorite too. Use it for everything from socks to baby blankets.

PLEASE NOTE: This yarn is dyed in dye lots of five skeins only. We are happy to visially match hanks for consistency should you need more than 5 skeins for a project, but we are unable to get more than 5 skeins per dye lot.

Overall Arroyo Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (4.8 based on 30 reviews)

5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This very beautiful yarn looks best knit at a slightly smaller gauge than the range of needles suggest but it is worth experimenting with. The knitted results are very wonderful. I love this yarn.

Purpuras Love 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Malabrigo Arroyo Yarn is a lovely and soft DK weight yarn. I used it to knit a hat for a friend. When the hat was completed, I couldn’t bear to part with it. The colorways purpuras were just gorgeous, and so, I ended up ordering more of the yarn, from Jimmy Beans, to knit another hat.

Soft! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I bought the #856 Azules and it's a beautiful mix of denim blues and soft purples....planning to make a cowl or scarf with it.

Malabrigo 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
As with all Malabrigo this yarn is fabulous. I am currently knitting a shawl. The yarn is a bit darker than expected....could be my monitor?? I definitely see more of this yarn in my future.
