Araucania Yarns are inspired by ancient South American crafts which were often created using hand-painted natural yarns. Each hank is different! Its individual beauty emerges as the artisan blends color in the kettle to create several unique shades. Mana is 100% hand painted Mulberry Silk, supported by free downloads and individual patterns. This yarn has an amazing softness and sheen and knits up at a worsted gauge.
