Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend Multis Yarn - 3301 Abalone Reviews

Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend Multis Yarn - 3301 Abalone
3301 Abalone shown $15.00
Manos Silk Blend is a luxurious blend of merino and silk. Hand dyed in large kettles to create a marbleized, subtly striated effect that forms a rich palette of glorious colors. No two skeins are exactly alike and there are no dye lots.

Manos yarn is hand dyed and hand wound by cooperatives in Uraguay. 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 2 gram variation in 50g hanks.

The 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!

It's a beautiful, soft, cushiony yarn. The color is striking.

soft and supple, fun to work with! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I am not normally a fan of this type of yarn because it seems to be a single ply, and single ply wools can be weak, knotty, and pull apart easily. This yarn, however, is absolutely beautiful and fun to work with. The end results are even more beautiful than I had expected them to be and my daughter LOVES wearing her hat and sweater.

Color issues 3 out of 5 (3 out of 5)
I know this is hand-dyed yarn, but I had extreme color variations in a single skein, and it got worse with the second skein. As always, JBW was incredible and offered me new skeins. But I would just warn people to be careful ordering this yarn online if you are using more than one skein. That said, it's beautiful and nice to work with.
