Malabrigo names most of their yarns in Spanish (their native language in Uruguay) and many of them with terms referring to their thickness. Rasta in Spanish means “dreadlock”, and is also how they refer in Spanish to a very thick cord. A lightly-fulled single-ply yarn of magnum proportions! Whip out a super-cozy accessory in just hours with this super-sized delight of a yarn. This premium Uruguayan merino is just as soft as ever, and Rasta comes in a range of unique “watercolor multi” colorways as well as a rainbow of semi-solid basics. Unbelievably squishy, this is the yarn to turn to when you want the ultimate in warmth (or the ultimate in speed!).
