Malabrigo Rios is a worsted weight 100% merino knitting and crochet yarn that is machine washable! Malabrigo is known for its small batches of deep and beautiful hand-dyed yarn, so be sure to buy enough Rios for your entire project. Its plied texture makes it resistant to pilling, too, so it’s perfect for garments, especially for kids. Dye lots can vary pretty significantly. It will also grow once blocked, so knit or crochet that gauge swatch!

I love this yarn. I am a relatively new knitter, but this has got to be one of my favorite yarns and the price it right. I am currently knitting a sweater and a slouchy hat. The colors are great! The yarn is soft and easy to work with.
All the qualities you want!

I've used Rios for many projects, and I've never been disappointed. It's soft and gets softer after a gentle hand wash (I hand wash all hand-knits, but that's just me). I'm happy to say that Raging Wool's colors seem to be fairly accurate as pictured, and if you call, they are only too happy to help with certain shades you're looking for. I received my yarn promptly, so, all in all, I'd have to say that shopping for yarn here is a great experience.
