I don't know if you've knit with Malabrigo Rios before, but I really like it, my new favorite go-to worsted weight wool. It's great for gifts because it's a Superwash Wool, so no risk of felting! It comes in both almost-solid and variegated colorways, so it should work for any kind of pattern you want!
Last week we got a big box full of brand new colorways of Rios, Check them out:
Lots of good stuff! Come on in and check them out soon before they are all gone! We also got these colorways in their sport-weight version, Arroyo!
