Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend Multis Yarn - 3127 Purple Rain Reviews

Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend Multis Yarn - 3127 Purple Rain
3127 Purple Rain 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!

Color issues 3 out of 5 stars (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.
