Manos del Uruguay (The Hands of Uruguay) is a non profit organization which assembles over 400 artisans in cooperatives scattered throughout the countryside of Uruguay. The aim of the organization is to bring economics and social opportunities to rural women. Manos del Uruguay is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization.
Fino is a fingering weight yarn made from 70% extra fine merino and 30% silk. Hand dyed in large kettles to create a marbelized, subtly striated effect that forms a rich palette of glorious colors. No two skeins are exactly alike and there are no dye lots.
We recommend buying enough yarn to complete a project. If there is great difference between skeins, we recommend knitting two rows from one skein and two rows from another skein, carrying the yarn up the side, to give an overall blended effect.
Tension: 24 - 28 stitches to 4 inches (10 cm) on a 3 - 3.5 mm (US 3 - 5) needle.
Cleaning: Hand wash, dry flat.
Available in a 100 gram (3½ ounce) skein or hank.
Contains approximately 450 metres (490 yards.)
Please note that the colours shown on these shade cards are only approximate.
