Cana Ruca - Fly Away to the Tropics (#06)
This is a bright, fun yarn! The main colours are a medium blue, very well matched with Atlantic in this range, and a straw yellow. There are also small sections of a rich gold and a slight lime-yellow and the colours progress.
Cana Ruca, 'sugar cane' in Spanish, is a soft, glossy yarn made from viscose derived from sugar cane. It reminds me of stranded embroidery cotton, with its lustre and six strands.
Each skein is hand painted. If using this in projects that need more than one skein it's recommended to alternate skeins every 2 to 4 rows. This yarn is also slightly splitty, so a hook or needles with nice rounded tips is recommended.
Fibre: 100% viscose (from sugar cane)
Length: 290m (319 yards)
Recommended needle: 4-5 (US), 3.5-3.75mm, E-G hook
This yarn is not colourfast! It needs at least four rinses before it stops releasing dye when wet. If you're planning Cana Ruca with another yarn please keep this in mind.
Hand wash in cold water, do not tumble dry, dry flat in shade, do not bleach, low iron, dry clean petroleum solvent only.
