Yarnbox SWEATER!

You’ve asked and we’ve answered! One of the most common suggestions we get at Yarnbox is a box just for sweaters and this month we’re bringing you the very first Yarnbox Sweater!
This special edition box begins with Malabrigo Rios. Rios is a 4-ply, machine washable, hand dyed merino wool. It is resistant to pilling, has great stitch definition and a soft hand- making it great for garments.
Malabrigo is a small family owned yarn company from Uruguay. They work hand in hand with a cooperative of women producing a range of exquisitely soft, hand dyed yarns that are a joy to work with. We’ve selected eight rich semi-solid colors for every taste.
From Left to Right: Sand Bank, Polar Morn, Periwinkle, Water Green
From Left to Right: Teal Feather, Fuscia, Matisse Blue, Ravelry Red
To complement this great yarn, we’ve teamed up with designer Ela Torrente, who designed the Semilla Sweater. Named after ‘seed’ in Spanish, Semilla features a timeless V-neck raglan shape with a broken seed stitch pattern and stockinette sleeves. This v-neck pullover is flattering, stylish and a great edition to your wardrobe. The pattern is great for a first-time sweater knitter or a seasoned veteran.
Designer Katy Petersen is also offering a special deal with the box for 60% off her Burnside Cardigan design that can also be created with this box’s yarn. This cardigan is worked top down and can be finished with either buttons or a zipper.
