Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend is a luxurious DK-weight 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 Uruguay. As with all hand-dyed yarn, there can be variations 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 del Uruguay yarn you purchase helps a woman in Uruguay support her family!
