Ruca Multi is a premium quality yarn for all-year-round knits. It is exceptionally soft, velvety to the touch and naturally lustrous. Ruca Multi is pure sugar cane viscose reminiscent of bamboo silk in light worsted weight. This yarn is hand dyed in soft and warm, beautiful muted hues. As all types of viscose, it's biodegradable, absorbent, breathable, hypoallergenic, and naturally thermo-regulating.

FYI 'Ruca' is the name that defined the housing of the Mapuches. Formerly the most wealthy had up to three ruca(s), one to sleep, one to cook and one to store, although there were also families with one, which meets all three functions. Its structure is based on two solid wood sticks of native trees, the roof and walls have a kind of vegetable fiber fabric highly resistant to the humid weather conditions in this region. At its center there is a cooker or Kutralwe formed by stones. Its main entrance is always oriented towards the birth of the Sun.
