Manos 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. Elegant and refined, Fino combines the softness of merino wool and the lustre of silk in a lightweight yarn. The silk in Fino is Tussah Silk, which 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 tonal colors. Make a special gift for someone (even yourself!) with Fino.

Please keep in mind that product colors may appear differently on your screen than they do in real life.
