Manos Del Uruguay Maxima Solid Yarn - M2020 Spirulina Reviews

Manos Del Uruguay Maxima Solid Yarn - M2020 Spirulina
M2020 Spirulina shown $15.00
Maxima is a super soft and squishy kettle-dyed yarn. The worsted weight one-ply construction makes it a great all purpose yarn, and the fantastic yardage makes it perfect for 1 skein accessory projects. Fun, bright, intense colors will make your hand made item stand out from the crowd!

Manos yarn is hand dyed and hand wound by cooperatives in Uruguay. As with all hand dyed yarn, there can be variation in hue, even within the same dye batch. Please be aware that the basic winding technique used by the co-ops can result in up to a 4 gram variation in 100g hanks.

Manos Cooperatives are a part of the World Fair Trade Organization and every hank of Manos yarn you purchase helps a woman in Uraguay support her family!

Overall Maxima Solid Rating: 5 out of 5 stars (5.0 based on 3 reviews)

My new favorite yarn!! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I LOVE this yarn. It is well worth the price. Beautiful, saturated color. No knots, whatsoever. I recommend winding by hand as it does tend to stick to itself, but that's just the nature of the single-ply wool. I used this for mittens and a hat - so so so warm and super soft!!

My favorite wool! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I am an independent knitwear designer and seller. I work with a lot of different fibers, but Manos Del Uruguay Maxima is my absolute favorite. I love the colors. The hand-dyeing techniques used produce such rich colors. The hand of the yarn and the finished products is wonderful. If I could, I would knit everything using this yarn!
