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!
