Exquisite hand-dyed superwash merino wool from Malabrigo
Rio means "river" in Spanish. Malabrigo Rios is named after the four major rivers in Uruguay: Rio Cuareim, Rio Uruguay, Rio de la Plata, and Rio Negro.
Each river is represented by one ply. These plies twist together like the winding rivers.
Rios also signifies the yarn's washability; for millennia, rivers have provided water for washing garments.
