    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 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.

                  Comments about Araucania Huasco:

                  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.

                    Comments about Araucania Huasco:

                    This yarn is a lovely weight and texture. It shows stitch patterns well, and holds its shape for lace. I used a size 7 needle and it was perfect.
                    The only negative toward this yarn is that it seems some of the colors are much more drab than pictured. I ordered the teal, olive, jade colorway and I was disappointed in the color I received. I kept the yarn and worked it anyway because I wanted to try it out, and I'm glad I did. However, I should have read more carefully the above review where it mentions this exact situation with the colors...
                    I will definitely buy more of this yarn, just not this colorway.
