Malabrigo Rasta Yarn - 862 Piedras
862 Piedras shown $22.00

This super chunky kettle dyed yarn from Malabrigo has 90 yards and knits up quickly on a US 13-17. It's single plied and one of the softest yarns we've ever felt.

Malabrigo has agreed to contribute a minimum of 5% of their gross profits from the sale of their Stitch Red product (873 Stitch Red) to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health in support of The Heart Truth® and women's heart health education and research.

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.

Terrific yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I love Rasta! The yarn holds up and doesn't pill, beautiful colors, and is not itchy. I have made a shawl, several hats and a couple cowls with this yarn. I can't say enough about it!

Perfect for a plush scarf 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Knitting a scarf in simple white with this lovely yarn. The fisherman's rib stitch makes it especially plush. I love the feel of the Rasta yarn.

Great 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Haven't used in a project yet. Beautiful color way. Less halo I think is the word they use than misty alpaca chunky and less silky. More volume and cottony. But sooooo nice.
