Manos del Uruguay

Manos Del Uruguay Fino


Manos del Uruguay, The hands of Uruguay, is a non profit organization which assembles women in cooperatives throughout the countryside of Uruguay.  The aim of the organisation is to bring economic and social opportunities to rural women.

Elegant and refined, Fino combines the softness of merino wool with the lustre of silk in a lightweight yarn that’s perfect for heirloom accessories or luxurious garments.  Fino features a new dye process that yields complex, subtle, tonal colors.  We recommend buying enough yarn to complete a project.  To give an overall blended effect, knit two rows from one skein and two from another.
