Manos del Uruguay Maxima
Manos del Uruguay Maxima is a single-ply merino yarn that's always a favorite. It's a versatile worsted-weight yarn that's super soft and available in both semi-solid and multi-colored skeins.
Maxima is spun from 100% extra fine merino wool and available in 219 yard skeins. As each skein is hand-dyed and unique, it's recommended that you alternate between two skeins, especially when you're knitting larger projects and are concerned about the color transitions from skein to skein. For care, be sure to gently hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry.
Manos del Uruguay is a nonprofit comprised of over 400 artisans throughout the countryside of Uruguay whose aim is to bring economic and social opportunities to rural women. Each skein's tag is signed by the woman who made your yarn and notes from which village your yarn came.
