Very soft 100% Superwash Merino. Arroyo is the baby sister of the fabulous Rios - same fibre, same texture, same amazing superwash but lighter and the perfect weight for the transition of the seasons.
This amazing yarn is so very soft and machine washable. And, with 306 metres, it's great value.
Fibre: 100% Merino Weight: Sport or light double knit (DK) (depends on needle size chosen) Gauge: 22 sts on 3.5mm needles, 20 sts on 4mm needles on a 10cm swatch. Needles: As needed for project and gauge Yardage: 306 metres per 100gm skein. Care: Gentle Machine wash in cool water. We recommend Eucalan no-rinse Delicate Wash.
Dyelot Batches: Like all Malabrigo yarns, Arroyo is kettle-dyed in small batches of 5 skeins by artisan dyers and is full of subtle variation and beauty. We suggest buying enough in the same dyelot batch to complete your project as skeins may vary from bag to bag hence the separate dyelot listings. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
Colours: Please view the colours on the Malabrigo website to get another photo representation. All cameras and computer monitors show the colours slightly differently, especially blues and reds. Send an email if you need advice.
