Malabrigo Rasta is produced in dye lots of 5. Any order for more than 5 skeins will be of mixed dye lots. Some colors do not have any dye lots. 

Hand-dyed yarns have subtle variations in color that are a desirable, beautiful feature and may vary from one skein to the next. Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. In some colors, the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
