Malabrigo Arroyo Yarn - 043 Plomo
043 Plomo shown $18.40

We are all in love with Arroyo yarn! With its 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 visually 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.

DK? 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I'm not sure how this and Malabrigo Silky Merino can both be DK. They are so different that I can only make sense of it if they are made by two different companies. Arroyo is much closer to Fingering weight while Silky Merino is definitely a worsted weight yarn. I've been told that I'm the only one to bring this up !?!? but if you're planning a project that calls for a DK weight yarn be aware of the discrepancy here. That being said they are still both in my top 10 list.

Just gorgeous! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I have always, and will always love Malabrigo. Their yarns are so plush and pleasing, even against the skin. My one and only peeve with Malabrigo not JBW, mind you is that different dye lots can bring a lot of variance with color. They are always beautiful, but they are not always consistent. Regardless, I continue to love Malabrigo, and I will continue to buy Malabrigo!

I love this yarn. It is so nice to knit with and I love seeing the way the colors show. The colors are so pretty. This is one of my favorite yarns. I used a size 6 needle.
