Manos Del Uruguay Milo yarn blends merino wool with fine linen for a yarn that is simultaneously rustic and elegant. The linen retains its natural color through the dye process, giving a heathered effect. It also lightens the yarn and gives the knitted fabric excellent drape.
We love this yarn for tops and shawls to wear from spring into warmer weather. The rustic texture of this yarn is unique and beautiful.
With each purchased skein of Manos del Uruguay yarn you will be helping a woman to support her family. Each skein is signed, so you will know who made your yarn, and from which village it came. You will be supporting the hand-crafted rather than mass-produced, and contributing to an economy where the workers control of the means of production. You, as a handknitter, crocheter or weaver, will be contributing to women’s careers in harmony with family life, and contributing to the landscape, and cultural heritage of Uruguay.
