Cobalt #14 in Araucania Huasco Aran Kettle Dyed

  • Deep blue (with a hint of teal) tonal shades to a medium, slightly aqua blue. The dye penetrates the yarn unevenly, creating a variegated or mottled effect.
    • An energetic color that is very striking.
    • Some areas are deeply saturated with color, creating intense hues that catch the light and draw the eye.
    • In other places, the color is more subdued, creating gentle transitions and subtle variations in tone.
    • Perfect for garments and accessories.  Pair with another shade in the same line for some fun contrast.
  • Araucania Huasco Aran has a spongy texture.
    • Sampled up in a crochet and in knit.  It was a sheer delight.
    • Consist of 3 single ply strands, spun together firmly for great body.
    • Holds textured stitches such as cables and lace beautifully.
    • Our test knit on the Silver Reed LK150 was a delightful experience. Knit smoothly and evenly. So loved crocheting it too!
  • Blending these high quality materials
    • 75% Superwash Merino Wool
    • 25% recycled nylon

Huasco Aran Yarn has a springy twist. I thoroughly loved testing it. I knit my knit sample on a US#9 and my crochet sample on a crochet hook I.  Both the knitting needle and crochet hook are a 5.5mm. This yarn is marked as a worsted.  On a #9 needle my gauge ended up at 4.5 sts per inch.  In crochet I had 4 sc per inch on a I-9 hook. This yarn works up more evenly than any other yarn I've sampled.  

The kettle dyeing is by Peruvian Artists. Yarn that is kettle dyed is placed in a small amount of water and the artist begins with placing the dye into the water. The yarn absorbs the yarn slightly unevenly. This is what produces the variations and intensity of the shades. This dying is what makes any kettle dyed yarn special.
