Manos del Uruguay Maxima Yarn{Manos del Uruguay Maxima Yarn in Arctic Shadow, Oxygen, Spirulina, Coral, Natural, and Dark Chocolate.}

Look at that snuggly goodness!

Let me introduce our latest colors of Manos del Uruguay’s Maxima, a worsted weight yarn that’ll be your new favorite. If it isn’t already! I’m wearing a diagonal rib a cowl in the gorgeous Spirulina right now which is just the accessory you need on a windy day like today.

You might also consider one of these new Manos del Uruguay knitting patterns that I’ve added to the shop, like the Beaubourg pullover and the Fumior cabled sleeves. Or, sign up for our Mittens Class to learn how to knit yourself a pair of, well, mittens with Maxima!

Manos del Uruguay yarn is 100% merino wool that is hand-spun and kettle-dyed by the local craftswomen of Uruguayan villages. So, with each purchase of Manos yarn, you’re helping support a woman and her family. You’re saying, “Hey. I don’t want my money just going anywhere. I can get this awesome yarn AND help people because handcrafted is where it’s AT.”  You’re kinda saying the same thing when you buy from my shop. (: You can read more about the good work of the Manos Cooperative here. You can also read about how the impact you can make by buying from local independent shops here.

So, take the chill off and treat yo’ self!
