    This was such soft, easy to crochet yarn. The colors are beautiful and vibrant and the fiber holds together very well. I am fairly new at using high end yarns for crochet, even tho I have a small stash of Araucania yarns. The *only* issue I had with this yarn was the short colorways. I was using crocodile stitch for a shawl and was hoping for each scale to be a different color, but it came out more like confetti, if that makes sense. Still beautiful, just not what I was envisioning. My fault, not the yarn, but I thought it worth mentioning for any other crochet people out there. :)

    I was so excited by this yarn the coloring was gorgeous on the webpage. I know that the coloring isn't even exact bu this coloring is so far from the picture I am very disappointed. The picture shows this beautiful and almost florescent colors for color number 3 and it looks more like color number 14 which is not a color I liked. The yarn is nice but I dislike the color so much and this was the one I had to have because of the beautiful color. A big let down when I got my yarn. I will not be purchasing this brand ever again that is too much of a difference.

    Comments about Araucania Huasco:

    I listed colorways in both the pro and con sections because a beautiful skein of Huasco can be one of the loveliest yarns you could hope to find. However, there is great inconsistency from skein to skein, moreso than you should really expect, even for a hand-dyed yarn. While every skein is unique, all of the colors (i.e. pumpkin, navy, and violet) should ALL be represented in any given skein of that colorway.

    Also, Araucania makes some odd choices in new colorways that are pretty much a bust. Personally, I'd rather see them work harder to make the beautiful colorways more reliable as there's no less artistry in that. They will always be unique, so there's no harm in making them consistently gorgeous!

    I've absolutely grown to love the feel and twist of this yarn though and the 450 yd skein is a wonderful size. Unfortunately, the last skein I received was relatively dull in its coloring (a caution for buying online I guess) and had a dye-lot number, which means it was an older skein as they no longer produce in dye lots.

        Comments about Araucania Huasco:

        I really am not experienced yet with yarn but this yarn taught me to understand what I thought was a complaint was actually a plus. This yarn does not split. I thought it sort of coarse and it might be be but it holds together. The color is brilliant in an intricate cable and because it is almost like a flax to handle the stitch definition is good but sometimes wobbly. The colors are so eccentric that I can not see it as overly useful but it has some wonderful qualities if one can use the color and has a pattern for fingering.

                I love Araucania Yarns. I use Huasco and Huasco DK. I love the subtleness of the colors, the feel of the yarn, and how I can work with it so easily. I just wish it came in a lot more colors!

                  Comments about Araucania Huasco:

                  Vibrant colors: bold turquoise with splashes of bright orange and purples. I knitted up a knee-high sock with this yarn, loving every stitch. The plies held together nicely and did not give me trouble when I had to frog and restitch. The fabric showed true stitch definition. It was all I could hope for in a sock yarn: strong, durable, beautiful, silky soft, and warm. Super fine merino is a fine choice for socks, but I can envision this yarn being great for gloves, hats, belts, scarves, and anything else you can imagine.

                    I've been ruined for all other fingering-weight yarns. This was my very first purchase for fine-gauge knitting and I have yet to encounter anything in this range that comes anywhere near the quality that this yarn has. The colour range is beguiling, it's soft, has great hand and -- despite the official care suggestions -- handles being machine-washed well, if you don't mind a bit of fading. This yarn is fantastic. I wish they were all this good.
