We name most of our yarns in Spanish (our native language here in Uruguay) and
Rasta in Spanish means “dreadlock”, and is also how we refer in Spanish to a very thick cord like our 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. Our premium Uruguayan merino is just as soft as ever, and Rasta comes in a range of our 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.
