YARNS: Manos del Uruguay Wool Yarn
MANOS del URUGUAY (Hands of Uruguay) is a cooperative of artisans
scattered throughout the countryside of Uruguay, formed to bring economic
and social opportunities to rural women.
Handspun and kettle-dyed over wood fires, no two skeins are exactly alike
and there are no dyelots. Always be sure to buy enough yarn to complete
Put up in 100-gram skeins, each of which has approximately 137 yards. It's
100% wool (a blend of Corriedale and Merino). If skeins vary more than you
like, when changing from one to another, alternate them two rows at a time
a couple of times, to give an overall blended effect. Approximately 610
yards per pound.
The first group are solid colors, the one marked "multi"
are space-dyed. Also see “Stria”, a cotton yarn made by
the same cooperative.
