After perusing some of our older posts (and preparing some work for the newsletter this month), I realized that we never did a full introductory post on our new Rios superwash worsted yarn! We talked about a few of the colors and dropped hints here and there, but for all things Rios, you really need a full post!

Rios is a superwash, 4-ply, worsted-weight yarn. It knits up really well on needle sizes US 6 – 8 (4 – 5 mm). Superwash means that you can put your knitted object through the wash and dry cycles on your at-home washing machine, making Rios really easy to care for, and ideal for knitting things like baby blankets, clothing, and housewares (afghan, anyone?)

Rios comes in a gorgeous range of colors, too! Some of your favorites – Lettuce, Purple Mystery, Indecita and Glazed Carrot – and some new colors, too, like Cumparsita and Candombe! You should always be able to find the perfect Rios to match your project.

Rios was introduced at TNNA in June, and is already showing up in stores that pre-ordered. Be sure to keep an eye out for Rios at a store near you this fall!

    I was very fortunate to be able to buy a test skein of this at Imagiknit in San Francisco, California, a few months ago, and I have been waiting impatiently ever since to be able to buy more. I am so glad you are bringing this yarn out! It is the softest worsted wool I’ve ever had and it is perfectly spun. You did a fabulous job with it.

    I’m wondering, though, if I will need to dye some of the natural myself if I want it in a light blue color this year? My first grandchild is on the way. I’m not complaining–I’m buying some Rios the moment I can!
