Product Details

Araucania Yarns is inspired by Ancient Chilean Crafts made from hand painted natural yarns. 

The company was born when Nora Bierschwale, textile designer and her daughter Michelle Boisier, architect, decided to combine their talents and experience with the mission to create and produce beautiful and one-off yarns for the global market, employing ancient and traditional techniques which reflect Chile's ethnic origins. 

Each Hank is different; its individual beauty  emerges as the artisans blend colors to create several unique, interwoven shades. Araucania Yarns is very proud to support local, sustainable job development, creating a new generation of skilled artisans in Chile. Each hank sold means more opportunities, more jobs, and more hope. 

Each hank of hand-dyed Araucania Alumco Yarn has a silky-smooth texture.  The juxtaposition of the cotton and viscose fibers create dynamic light play.  Alumco is true to its ancient South American inspiration with bright saturated colors.  Use it to make any summer weight accessory, a lacy shawl, or a unique short sleeve sweater.
