          Beautiful color, Not a good product

          By Marta Cafarelli

          from Woonsocket, Rhode Island

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Color Is Only Benefit

          Cons

          • Fibre Texture Is Rough

          Best Uses

          • Wash cloths

          Comments about Araucania Rinihue:

          I purchased this yarn to make a cowl. I have knitted 7 inches in the recommended size needle and it's too big. It is a rough textured material and has little to no drape. I do not believe that I will continue with the project because I don't believe it will be worn by the intended user. I am very dissapointed. The description did not do a good job of detailing the exact composition of the fibre. I would not recommend nor buy this product again.

          Comments about Araucania Rinihue:

          If you knit two skeins at once, alternating rows, it minimizes the color variation

          Comments about Araucania Rinihue:

          The colors were significantly darker then expected.I understand that colors are different varying on monitor. But the difference is great between the bright colors I wanted and the dark dull colors I received. It is also very rough and itchy, I could hardly stand it touching my skin while I worked with it. Since the colors didn't work for the planned project; I worked one ball as a gift for my sister and I have no clue what to with the other now.

          Difficult to Discern Colors

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Lovely Lovely Yarn

          Cons

          • Wish I had more time

          Comments about Araucania Rinihue:

          Lovely and beautiful yarn. Have not decided yet, maybe socks. Wish colors could be more accurate to actual product, but will not be returning any. Would love swatches of particular groups as I live in Florida and it is difficult to find large collections of yarns.

              Best Uses

              • Hat Gloves Mitts Scarf

              Comments about Araucania Rinihue:

              I knit a cardigan with front eyelet panels in this yarn. It was a poor choice, as the inconsistancy between the hand-dyed skeins led to a finished garment with lots of flashing and pooling. To add to the problem there were panels of an eyelet stitch on the fronts of the sweater. The yarn itself has a dry hand, no stretch and a rustic quality to it. It was a poor choice for a garment but a more appropriate choice for 1 skein accessories!

              Worked well for triangular weaving

              By Lenore at the Loom

              from Hillsdale, MI

              Verified Buyer

              Comments about Araucania Rinihue:

              This yarn was used to teach continuous strand weaving. It was a a bit too stiff and "stuck" together a little, making the hand weaving a little difficult. However, the colors blended nicely and the end result was beautiful. It did "full" well, making a nice feeling soft shawl.
