Just looking for a single ball of one of these beauties? Go to our Malabrigo Rios Last hanks of Dyelots page here...
Dyelot Batches: Like all Malabrigo yarns, Rios is kettle-dyed in small batches of 10 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. Malabrigo Yarns are small dyelot batches and can vary considerably - so we are now listing colours as per the dyelot batches. Send an email if you need advice.
