Cana Ruca - Jungle Joy (#202)
Jungle Joy is a vibrant, joyous green, much brighter than Pistachio Apple. Its mostly a green with blue undertones, but occasionally strays into a yellow green. This colour mix is more of a semi-tonal than a variegated yarn.
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.
