 Araucania Yarns - Huasco Sock Hand Paint - Antofagasta 1009

Antofagasta is pale grey (with a drop of blue, but more grey) and sandy brown, all sprinkled with splatters of more grey.   Has a distinct country (as in Western) look about it.  Really cute for any little boy project or any person who loves the ol' American Country colors.

This hand painted superwash blend is wild and zany. Do you like color? Huasco Sock Yarn has a future beyond socks. Shawls, scarves, hats and garments. Match up with corresponding solids or complimentary shades to make your own amazing designs.  The hot item today is shawls or wraps that use 5 different shades of yarn, and many of them are hand-dyed.   Huasco would be a great addition of color to your designs.
