Manos del Uruguay
The South American yarn producer, Manos del Uruguay, has existed since 1968. From the very beginning, their aim was to improve the life quality for the women in villages of Uruguay by offering them work. Since 2009 Manos del Uruguay has been a member of the World Fair Trade Organization.
One of the many reasons for the uniqueness of the yarn made by Manos del Uruguay is the many beautiful colours and heathering. All their yarn is hand-dyed in the most stunning nuances and variations. Therefore, every single skein is unique. The secret herein lies in the small lots of yarn being dyed in wood-fired kettles. Factors like the local water, the weather as well as the time of year all contribute in the creation of the exquisite nuances.
