Manos Del Uruguay
Fino is a stunning merino and silk yarn, kettle-dyed by the fair trade artisans of Manos del Uruguay. Elegant and refined, this single-ply fingering weight yarn will delight knitters and crocheters with its softness from the merino wool and luster from the Tussah Silk.
Tussah Silk is produced by silkworms that feed on oak leaves, rich in tannins that give the fiber a gorgeous golden tone. The colors of Fino are complex, subtle, and tonal.
This yarn is perfect for knitting or crocheting a dazzling shawl or garment. Make a special gift for someone (even yourself!) with Fino.
Manos del Uruguay is a Fair Trade organization that was founded to give Uruguay’s rural women jobs that provide not just an income, but also an opportunity to personally develop and gain independence, keeping their roots and traditions, close to their community and families. Every yarn produced by these women has a tag with the artisan's signature and the name of the village where it was produced.
