Malabrigo Rasta: the kettle-dyed, vibrant colorways you love on a super-bulky, slightly felted Merino wool single! When you need a simple gift in VERY short order, this is the yarn you want.
What can you make with just one ball of this gorgeousness? How about knitting a Nour hat by Alexandra Alfonso (Ravelry link) or the LTYC Super Bulky Cowl by Kelly Hechinger (Ravelry link)? For the crocheters, fear not! For the absolute beginners, practice chaining with the Chaining to Infinity and Beyond cowl by Beth Bonkowski (Ravelry link); if you want a little more of a challenge and textural effect, how about the Tesserae Scarf by Lisa Doherty (Ravelry link)?
You could even throw it into an abstract weaving project - check out The Weaving Explorer for inspiration!
