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 Silk Blend is a kettle dyed yarn which produces a tone-on-tone effect, or a semi-solid effect. This yarn is 70% wool and 30% silk. 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: 22 stitches to 4 inches (10 cm) on a 4 mm (US 6) needle.
Cleaning: Hand wash, dry flat.
Available in a 50 gram (1¾ ounce) skein or hank.
Contains approximately 135 metres (148 yards.)
Please note that the colours shown on these shade cards are only approximate.
