The company started as a mother/daughter business venture, today Araucanía Yarns had expanded, and is a group of artisans and designers dedicated to the artisan dyeing of fibers for weaving and knitting located in Santiago, Chile. They are constantly working on developing the range of natural yarns and fibers featuring their exclusive variegated colors, based entirely on their own careful handcrafted process. Araucanía is also very proud to support local sustainable job developement, creating a new generation of skilled artisans in Chile. Each hank sold means more opportunities, more jobs, and more hope.
Each hank of Araucanía yarn is different; its individual beauty emerges as the artisan blends color to create several unique shades. The random colour placement of the dyes, together with the smooth feel of their yarn blends, will inspire you to create a beautiful and unique project. For even color distribution, it is recommended that you alternate between skeins while knitting.
