    Malabrigo Rios - Archangel

    Posted by Leah on 7th Feb 2021

    I ordered this yarn online, so I didn't see it before I bought it. It's beautiful, yet the archangel color is so bold, I decided not to use it for the pattern I had intended it for. It's the risk I took buying Malabrigo yarn. It's okay, I still love it. It will stay in my stash until I find the perfect project for it.

    Beautiful and soft for a baby blanket.

    I was a frequent attendee at the knitting clinics, but am now staying safe and at home during the pandemic. I needed an easy project to work on as two other more challenging projects had come to a screeching halt. I called and talked with Ted, who was most helpful in suggesting this Malabrigo Rios yarn for a Tin Can Knits Malt baby blanket. Within a few days, I had this lovely yarn in hand and I love the look and feel. Thank you, Ted, and everyone at The Yarnery, for helping us move forward in these challenging times.
