        Wish I'd bought more! Will certainly buy again, already looking for patterns. Have knitted a lovely lacy cardigan, this was perfect quick to knit and lovely drape.

            This yarn makes beautiful, soft cowls that drape perfectly. The yarn feels silky against your skin. The colors are really beautiful. Haven't washed this yarn yet so I hope it keeps its luster and soft feel.

                  This is the first time I have used this yarn. I am knitting Sunday Knits Palindrome scarf with this. It is easy to work with, on size 7 circular needles. I would use it again. I have only been knitting a couple of months. I recieved a hank as a gift and got another one from Webs.

                    Comments about Araucania Ruca Multi:

                    Found this yarn on sale and saw the reviews for it were amazing and I was intrigued by it being made of sugar cane so I just had to buy it. I bought several skeins of 1 color for a dress I have yet to make, but loved it so much I also bought 2 skeins of another color. Didn't care what I was going to use it for, but just thought it was beautiful. I ended up making a drop stitch lace scarf with the 2 skeins and it knitted up so fast. The drape of this yarn is amazing, it's so soft, the colors are beautiful, I can't wait to to see how it knits into the dress. HIGHLY recommend this yarn for any project you're looking for beautiful draping. The 2 skeins I received were from the same dye lot, but the colors were quite different, but in a the scarf you can hardly tell.

                    Also, it rolled into a ball beautifully. No broken strands or knots to deal with.

                        This yarn is best used at a fairly tight gauge as it stretches. I made a sweater and it is a little droopy. I have not washed this yet but have read that if put in the dryer on low it might shrink back a little, albeit temporarily. This yarn is best used with items not meant to have a specific fit.

                            I bought this because it was on sale and I was intrigued about it's sugar cane origins. I used it to knit a newborn sweater and headband. Knits beautifully, great stitch definition, colors were yummy. Best of all, so soft for a baby item. This will be my new newborn "go to gift". Just wish it were machine washable...
