Lujoso means "luxurious" in Spanish and Araucania Lujoso is definitely luxurious with an incredibly soft and silky hand and a wonderful next to skin feel. Lujoso has a Baby Alpaca, Extra-fine Merino Wool and Mulberry Silk fiber content and comes in big 100 gram hanks with 164 yards of luscious yarn. These high-end fibers are loosely plied with a subtle thick and thin 2-ply structure giving Lujoso a lovely texture in rich colors. Lujoso has a very subtly marled look as the alpaca, merino and silk fibers absorb the dye differently, which also adds to the character of this yarn. With an excellent drape and a silky sheen Lujoso can be used to make garments and accessories such as scarves, cowls, shawls and wraps, and works up quickly at a heavy worsted to aran gauge.
