A soft and sturdy plied sport-weight, Arroyo has quickly become a favorite among knitters. It’s perfect for those everyday lightweight (but warm) garments, and the superwash wool means it’s easy to take care of. Think of it as Rios' baby brother (and speaking of babies, it’s perfect for them too.)!
When Malabrigo dyes their yarns, the same formula is used each time but every batch of yarn is assigned a different dye lot number. The differences from one dye lot to another can be very subtle, or extremely noticeable, especially on variegated yarns. *Variegated yarns now have no assigned dye lot*
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. Skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
The colors shown in photos are illustrated as reference, as mentioned above, they can differ on more or less of one tone, due to the hand-dyed process and also due to the different color settings on monitors and devices.
