Manos Silk Blend
Manos Silk Blend is a luxurious blend of merino and silk. It is hand-dyed in large kettles to create a marbelized, subtly striated effect that forms a rich palette of glorious colours. No two skeins are exactly alike and there are no dye lots.
We recommend that you buy enough yarn to complete a project. If there is a great difference between skeins, we recommend knitting two rows from one skein and two rows from another skein to give an overall blended effect.
MANOS DEL URUGUAY, The Hands of Uruguay, is a non-profit organisation which assembles women in cooperatives scattered throughout the countryside of Uruguay.
The aim of the organisation is to bring economic and social opportunities to rural women.
