Manos Del Uruguay 50 year anniversary
 

Happy Golden Anniversary to our friends at Manos del Uruguay! This year, they celebrate 50 years (wow!!!) of fiber. In 1968, 5 Uruguayan women shared a vision of providing tools and empowerment for the women of rural Uruguay. They dreamed of creating not only jobs for these women, but also independence. Using skills learned from their mothers and grandmothers, and the resources at hand (wool!), Manos del Uruguay was born.

Today, Manos del Uruguay, a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, is comprised of 12 cooperatives, located across the rural countryside of Uruguay. They hand dye each hank of yarn in small batches, no 2 skeins are exactly alike - each is its own unique work of art, signed on the label by the artist! Every skein is an opportunity for these women to support themselves and their families.

We're proud to carry Manos del Uruguay yarn, and encourage you to learn more about Manos del Uruguay's story. Head over to our blog for more, and to hear from the women themselves, you can watch this video!

Beekman 1802, and... OPRAH?!

If you're like us, you might check Oprah's annual "Favorite Things" list, you know... for inspiration. (... gift inspiration, wishlist inspiration, I-need-this-now inspiration. Hey, if Oprah likes it, we probably will too, right?!) Imagine our surprise when we saw our new friends, Beekman 1802, ON Oprah's list. Our hearts are so full when we see brands that we know and love recognized for their wonderful-ness!

And, there is no shortage of wonderful-ness in Beekman 1802 products! With a focus on eliminating harmful chemicals, while incorporating botanical-based ingredients from their farm, Beekman 1802 prides themselves on the quality of their products. Clean and simple - just the way we (and Oprah!) like it!

Shibui's Multigrain Scarf

Multigrain is a gorgeous scarf that mixes several lace weight Shibui yarns together. Pebble, Silk Cloud, and Cima, are held double in alternating combinations to create different textures. We love how plush and cozy this scarf is! (So much so, that it was hard to part with, as we sent it along to its next destination!)
