 Yarn for my Mother 1 of 4 
 Review by: Mineral Cats Aug 20, 2014 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Malabrigo - Rios
While I am not a fan of multi-colored yarn, my mother adores them. She was determined to copy a pattern that I knitted but had strict requirements for the yarn. 1. Machine washable she has had many unfortunate unintentional felting incidents 2. Forgiving of mistakes, not splitting she once had to frog a project and the yarn was not usable afterwards 3. Non-fading color So far, it has been very forgiving of mistakes and the swatch went through the wash perfectly. Only time will tell about steadfast color.

 Smooth and Sweet 3 of 4

Just started Jared Flood's Rock Island shawl. It is knitting very smoothly but since it is two ply I have had a little trouble with splitting. While knitting the yarn tangled and I got an impossible knot. Ended up having to cut it. So it can be finicky. Might get a better rating after blocking. Overall a yarn I recommend and look forward to knitting with again.

 A Tad Fluffy 4 of 4

All in all I rather enjoyed working with this yarn. It is a nice 100% wool so I can forgive it for being a little rough before its first wash. The yarn itself has a very loose spin and can split when not paying attention. This also causes a halo effect after knitting. I also imagine that it would make for a great felting wool.
