RESTOCKED Malabrigo Rasta

We just got a Malabrigo Restock in, and I tried to get my hands on as much of your fall & winter fave Malabrigo Rasta in the variegated colours as we can handle (We also got lots more Rios & Mecha, but that’s a whole other post). We have lots of for the sweaters, blankets and accessories of your dreams. Rasta is perfect for quick one-skein gifts. Don’t wait too long to pick yours up, COVID-related product shortages are still very much a thing this year (there are still manufacturing and shipping delays across all industries).

Malabrigo Rasta is a hand-painted, single-ply, 100% merino wool made in Uruguay. It’s very popular and we generally have a hard time keeping sweater quantities in stock, so if you’re in love be sure to put a ring on it and lock it down!

Needles

We think Interchangeable needles area great way to go when a pattern calls for a bunch of sizes you don’t normally use. The Knitter’s Pride tips can be a great value, while the Addi Interchangeables are the premium option. If getting interchnageables, be sure to get the shorter 3.5″ tips for the 16″ length needles – the 4.5″ tips are too long and will not work with a cord that short.

If you prefer fixed circular needles, Clover and Addi both make wonderful quality circular needles, and if you want a wood 15mm/US19 circular check out the Knitter’s Pride Fixed needles.

  • 9mm/US13 – 16″ circular needles (if buying interchangeables get the shorter 3.5″ tips, the 4.5″ tips are too long for this length cord)
  • 10mm/US15 – 24″ circular needles
  • 15mm/US19 – 24″ circular needles
  • 15mm/US19 – 32″ circular needles (or longer, for optional magic loop, or use double pointed needles)
