Rasta

standard yarn weight icon

Malabrigo names most of their yarns in Spanish (their native language in Uruguay) and many of them with terms referring to their thickness. Finito, Mechita, Mecha, and Rasta are examples of this.
Rasta in Spanish means “dreadlock”, and is also how they refer, in Spanish, to a very thick cord like their yarn. A lightly-fulled single-ply yarn of magnum proportions! Whip out a super-cozy accessory in just hours with this super-sized delight of a yarn. The premium Uruguayan merino is just as soft as ever, and Rasta comes in a range of unique “watercolor multi” colorways as well as a rainbow of semi-solid basics. Unbelievably squishy, this is the yarn to turn to when you want the ultimate in warmth (or the ultimate in speed!)

Great for: Quick knits, textured stitches, hats, cowls, scarves, outerwear.

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. 

When Malabrigo dyes their yarns, the same formula is used each time but every batch of yarn is assigned a different dye lot number. The differences from one dye lot to another can be very subtle, or extremely noticeable, specially on variegated yarns.
When assigning a dye lot number, the main use is to identify which skeins can be labeled and packed together. After their quality control team checks the skeins, they go to the labeling section and then are put in bags of five or ten (depending on the yarn).
Once the bags get to the yarn stores, most skeins go to different shelves where they can get mixed. The dye lot code is really helpful when you try to find skeins that match.

Unfortunately, they don't have a record of which yarn store receives a specific dye lot and it's impossible for to find out where you can find the same dye lot skeins.  

The colors shown on photos are illustrated as reference, as mentioned above, they can differ on more or less of one tone, due to the hand-dyed process.

Worked up beautifully for a pair of felted house clogs. Will definitely be making more clogs out of this!
