Araucanía Itata Solid, colorway: Melon

So sad to find out that Araucania has discontinued Itata. So crisp, the feel and color … wool, bamboo and silk.

It’s absolutely one of my favorites. When I first tried it for Polly’s Newsboy  I was a bit disappointed, it felt harsh and dry. But gradually my project grew into this smooth and very crisp piece of fabric creating a beautiful drape. The colors are amazing too, very vibrant with a very subtle variegation.

I’ve got two last skeins left in the colorway Melon. I want to make something special … maybe this tank ?
