Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend Yarn

Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend yarn is luxurious merino-silk blend, hand dyed and wound by women working at The Manos Cooperatives, part of the World Fair Trade Organization. No two hanks come exactly alike, as there are no dye lots, but all come with a rich, vibrant hue. Enhance your projects with personality and purpose, since every hank of Manos del Uruguay yarn you purchase helps a woman in Uruguay support her family!

Product Details

Please note, due to the hand-dyed nature, there can be variation in hue, even within the same dye batch. Also, please be aware that the winding technique used by the co-ops can result in up to a 2 gram variation in 50g hanks.
