In My Stash: Araucania Nuble

Update: Click here to see what I made with this yarn.

One of the highlights of our trip to St. Louis was a stop at Knitorious. I’m lucky to have a couple of nice yarn shops nearby, but that store ruined me for many other shops. It’s amazing. My favorite part is that they have lots of skeins of each colorway on the shelves. I know many stores will order more skeins for you, but there’s something comforting about seeing all of the skeins you’ll need in-stock.

My favorite purchase from this store was three skeins of Araucania Nuble yarn (you can buy it online here). It was a bit of a splurge for me, but I loved the colors and – hey – it was vacation. 🙂

I was initially drawn in by the colors (Colorway 06) – pink, blue, and purple have been my favorites since I was little. A girly-girl forever. These turquoise, violet, and fuschia jewel-tone shades were just too beautiful to pass up.

Texture is also a big factor for me – my precious princess skin is sensitive to some wool blends. I suspect I have a mild allergy, which is rather inconvenient for this hobby. In any case, this yarn is no problem for me: 75% Extra Fine Merino, 25% Silk.

The plan for the yarn at this point is to use it for the Glitz at the Ritz shawl. I bought a package of Bead Treasures Beach Party mix to use on this project.

I’m really, really excited to get started. So many queued projects, so little time. My current project? Even more cable knitting, my most ambitious one yet. Can’t wait to share it!
