Yarn Review: Malibrigo Arroyo

Posted on

First things first: Don't forget to enter our yarn bowl giveaway, you have until Friday morning to enter.


Our love for Madelinetosh has been well documented, but there is a new kid on the block and I'm falling head over heels. Arroyo is a newer Sport/DK weight yarn from Malibrigo. I have been working with it in both Prussia Blue and Coffee Toffee. I am so insane about this color. Look at how incredible it looks knitted up! ...and the pattern I'm working on - incredible too, but more about that another day! Arroyo is very affordable at $18/skein and you get 330 yards per skein.  Something about this yarn allows me to obtain really even stitches in my knitting. I haven't quite figured out what it is but I am so happy with the result.  It doesn't pill or get too fuzzy and I haven't had any issues with the yarn splitting.  They also have a nice assortment of colors to pick from.  I picked mine up at Creative Fibers, one of my local yarn shops that I love to frequent, but if you're not local, I highly recommend Jimmy Beans Wool. A little shout out to them. Katie and I have both been very impressed with their speedy delivery and outstanding customer service.

    Lovely pictures. Arroyo looks yummy. BTW, Arroyo means water stream in Spanish.

    The Prussia Blue is really pretty too. I am anxious to see what you are making with it Kara!

    I adore Madelinetosh but it is like with having children. I adore Malabrigo just as much. They are both so beautiful.

    The shine might be more pronounced in these pictures because I had a very large window with morning light shining through behind me when taking the photo. It has a slight shine but nothing too dramatic like something synthetic!

    Does the Arroyo have a shine to it when knit up? Very pretty colors!
