Yummy Big Yarn

First of all, I'm in love with Malabrigo yarn. It has a wonderful "hand" and the finished products look almost polished - unlike most itchy wool. I made a hat out of the Rasta for my grandson and he loves it. Right now, I'm working on a shrug out of the Rios. If I'm going to spend all this time on a garment, the yarn has to be wonderful. Life is too short for cheap yarn!

Cheryl, we get it, Rasta is one of our favorites too. Thank you for the 5 ★★★★★ review. Andrea
