We love Malabrigo's Washted and Rios yarns! They Have many similarities and yet, have their own unique qualities. Washted and Rios are both 100% premium superwash merino worsted-weight yarns with the same gauge and nearly the same yardage. Washted is a beautiful single ply yarn. The manner in which it is dyed gives it a "painterly" look and feel. The texture and drape of the fabric are beyond compare. Malabrigo Rios is a super soft 4-ply workhorse yarn available in an amazing number of colourways. The plies make for great stitch definition and help resist pilling.
Malabrigo loves both yarns so much they couldn't pick just one or this book! They hope you feel tempted to try the same pattern in both yarns to experience the difference yourself.
