Araucania is known for their back-to-basic wools, able to stand on looks alone without any fancying up from dyes. RANCO and RANCO MULTI, their new sock yarns, continue that tradition, showcasing traditional kettle-dyed and handpainted wools that knits up into lushly textured socks. Accompanying patterns let knitters see how all the color patterns knit up, so the planning can begin! Made in Chile.
Note: Each color can vary quite a bit from dye lot to dye lot.
Unhappy Customer! Label on yarn says machine washable. Not true. Product description says this yarn will felt. Okay, I think that's false information. I would NEVER have purchased this yarn if I knew it was hand wash only.
I love this yarn - for the most part! The colors are lovely, the yarn works up and wears very nicely as socks. The only downside is that the skein you get can vary a bit in color from the picture shown. I've ordered 6 skeins now and have been very happy with the color of 5 of them. The 6th was pictured as multi greens and when I got it it was half green/half rust - quite a bit different from what I was expecting.
I bought two skeins of this last week while browsing in the warehouse. The pair of socks I've started is working up beautifully. An easy yarn to knit, it is stretchy and forgiving. With regard to the color related complaints, perhaps the previous user didn't realize that this is hand dyed yarn. Variations are inherent in the product
The picture of the sock has greens and lots of blues and purples. The hanks I got look nothing like the picture - there is a TON of browns and oranges, and the blues and purples are not represented much - and there is zero green represented in this paint. Do not go based off the picture at all. There is white in there too. Not really a happy camper right now.
