We name most of our yarns in Spanish (our native language here in Uruguay) 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 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.
