Malabrigo names most of their yarns in Spanish (Uruguay's native language) and many of them with terms referring to their thickness. Finito, Mechita, Mecha, and Rasta are examples of this.
Rasta in Spanish means “dreadlock”, and is also referred in Spanish to a very thick cord like this 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. Premium Uruguayan merino is just as soft as ever, and Rasta comes in a range of 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!)
