Malabrigo Rastita

Weight=99 Grams

Rastita

Like Rasta, but thinner! This DK-weight yarn shares Rasta’s lightly-felted, single-ply construction and many of the same gorgeous watercolor-multi colorways, but its lighter weight means it’s fantastic for garments, shawls, and other lightweight applications.

Great for: Shawls, scarves, accessories, lace, textured stitches, cables, lightweight garments.

Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. In the tagged (*) colors, the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
