We have received three new colours of Rasta, a great super-bulky weight Merino Wool by Malabrigo Yarns that knits on 9 - 12mm needles, perfect for Cowls, Afghans, Hats and Mitts.
Rasta is a single ply of 100% Merino Wool put up in 90yd/82m skeins, the yarn is given a slight twist and then lightly felted and hand dyed in the great colours Malabrigo is known for. Here is a sampling of the Rasta colours we stock at Stix & Stones.
Being a super-bulky weight means this yarn works up fast, so if you are looking to reward yourself or gift a certain someone with a knitting project that works up fast, Rasta is an excellent choice.
1-2 skeins of Rasta are perfect for most accessory patterns including these popular free patterns available on Ravelry.com:
