Craftspeople working together in Uruguay create this gorgeous, handcrafted, kettle dyed yarn which sustains their community. Manos del Uruguay's "Wool" is a heavy worsted yarn. This yarn can be hand washed and dried flat. Available in a variety of colors, including variegated, and because it's hand-spun, the texture and thickness vary a bit as well. Another benefit to knitting with Manos is that it takes stitches very well. It makes cozy sweaters and jackets, delightful hats, quick and wonderful scarves, luscious throws. Cold water, delicate cycle or hand wash. Lay flat to dry.
