Arroyo is a soft and sturdy plied sport-weight that has quickly become a favorite among knitters! It’s perfect for those everyday lightweight (but warm) garments, and the superwash wool means it’s easy to take care of. Think of it as Rios' baby brother! (And speaking of babies, it’s perfect for them too.)
Great for: Shawls, scarves, accessories, lace, textured stitches, cables, lightweight garments, baby and kids items
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. 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.
Care: Machine washable, gentle cycle, cold water, do not tumble, dry flat to pattern dimensions. It will seem all stretched out at first but if allowed to dry and fluffed regularly the wool's natural crimp will return the garment to desired size.
