Araucania Trauco is a luxurious 100% cashmere yarn. Don't let this closeout slip by! It would be perfect for holiday knitting, or even better, creating something for yourself! Raw yarn made in Italy, hand dyed in Chile.
I was really surprised and disappointed by the texture of this yarn. It feels really coarse. I would have thought that 100% cshmere would have felt luxurious. It'll serve its purpose for the project I have in mind and I didn't pay too much for it due to closeout, but I wouldn't recommend or buy it again.
I too was disappointed with the coarseness of this cashmere. I would never have thought this would be classed as cashmere. I am hoping that it will soften with washing. Plus, the dye process was very poor - under each tie of the hank was noticeably less dye. I decided to go ahead and knit a cabled/moss stich throw so hopefully will be blurred in the stitch changes.
The yarn does have that rich feeling that cashmere is known for, but the reason for 3 stars is because the dye job is poor. I bought purple skeins and the area under the string typing the yarn together was not dyed and showed up white. Very disappointing.
