Oooo Fino, we are excited to announce that we have just received our first shipment of Manos Del Uruguay’s new elegant and refined yarn, Fino. A superb blend of silk and extra fine merino wool the yarn combines softness and lustre in a lightweight yarn that is perfect for heirloom accessories or luxurious garments. Fino features a new dye process that yields complex, subtle, tonal colors that are absolutely gorgeous.
I’m thinking the Circle Scarf a free download on Fairmount Fibers website will probably be a good project to start, with 490 yards per skein you will only need one.
Manos del Uruguay has been admitted as a full member of WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization), the global representative body of over 350 organizations committed to 100% Fair Trade. This recognizes Manos’s mission to eradicate poverty through sustainable economic development, pioneering social and environmental policy and practice, and continual reinvestment in marginalized artisans, farmers and producer communities. -B
