Araucania Yarns are inspired by ancient South American crafts which were often created using hand-painted natural yarns. Each hank is different! Mana is pure luxury - 100% Mulberry Silk. This one is superb for special occasions or heirloom work. We like it for large shawls, tank tops & pullovers. Very drapey when worked, Mana can tend to grow while wearing so think twice when selecting needle/hook and size of pattern. This yarn should be hand wound.
