Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend Yarn - 3047 Cerise (Discontinued)
3047 Cerise (Discontinued) shown

Sorry, but specific product you requested is not currently available. Hopefully you can find another option below.

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!

Delicious Yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Manos Silk Blend is one of my favorite yarns, and this particular color is especially beautiful. It looks great with some of the Manos Silk Blend blues.

A very pale, cool green. Great soft yarn. Easy to work with. It did not split on me.

Started knitting a hat for a friend. Yarn is soft and the color is a nice pale green. Would buy this yarn again.

Fallen in Love 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I have been asked frequently what my favorite yarn is and haven't had a heartfelt reply until now. This is simply a dream to touch and light variegation is beautiful when straight knit. I made the Eco Highland Scarf free pattern and will not be parting with it. I have decided it would be worth every penny to risk doing a blanket in the chunkier version of this yarn. FALLEN.IN.LOVE.

I love working with and wearing items made from this yarn. It is soft and warm. The patterns available for MDU's silk blend are great.
