General Information

Knitting Yarn from Manos del Uruguay. Dyed in the Kettle.

Manos de Uruguay uses soft Merino wool with a fibre fineness of 19 micrometres, making it a high-quality product. The yarn-making process alone makes the wool extraordinary. Not only is it hand-spun, but it is kettle-dyed by hand using traditional techniques. The woollen strands are bound and dipped into the dye up to six times, resulting in very many hues with subtle nuances and shades of colour which make each skein unique. The colours are always different.
The fine yarn is suitable for almost all knitting projects, for scarves and caps as well as sweaters or cardigans. The knitting instructions for the cap shown in one of the pictures here are printed on the inside of the label on each skein. With this soft yarn, slight pilling may occur on the knitted fabric. Please note that hand dyeing means the product received may look different from the samples shown here. It is, therefore, a good idea to make sure you order enough yarn, or alternatively knit with two strands to avoid any colour differences being noticeable.

The Hands of Uruguay.

Since 1968, the organisation Manos del Uruguay has been a proponent of women’s economic, social and personal development in the rural areas of Uruguay. To date, more than 800 women have joined various cooperatives and are able to earn their living under fair and transparent working conditions. In addition, production conserves resources by using natural raw materials. Both the raw materials and water are used sparingly, and the use of environmentally harmful chemicals is avoided. Since 2009, the organisation has been a member of the WFTO LA (Associación Latino Americana de Comercio Justo), the Latin American chapter of the World Fair Trade Organization.
