        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.

              This is one of my favorite socks yarns that I've used. Gorgeous colors, and it's easy to use. Definitely something I would recommend to avid sock/scarf knitters!

                I have not yet knitted this yarn; however, the hand dyed colors are to "dye" for and the feel of the yarn is delicious!

                    This yarn is soft and smooth, and very easy to knit with. I made a light-weight summer jumper, and it feels so soft next to skin. Has just the right amount of stretch. Using US3 bamboo needles, there was no splitting issues at all. Color transitions are very pretty. It did bleed quite a bit when wet-blocked. I wish I had bought more while it was on sale.
