Malabrigo Rios is a gorgeous hand-dyed, machine washable, worsted weight merino from Uruguay. Gorgeous stuff, it is - and incredibly versatile. Lynne and Mary have both been playing with it to see what they could come up with for a fabulous one-skein project. Mary knit up a lacy little scarf from a free pattern called Arroyo.
Lynne has been crocheting with Rios and created this great ribbed scarf. For some reason, guys love this fiber, and I think this would be a really nice scarf for any men on your holiday list.
