Manos del Urugay Franca is a super-bulky-weight, single-ply, 100% superwash Merino wool yarn with 114 yards per 150 gram skein. This super-bulky, small-batch, hand-dyed yarn works up quickly and with a gorgeously soft and cozy fabric. The tonal semisolids and space dyes are stunning, and make even the simplest garments and accessories shine. Ideal for cozy cowls and funky accessories, Franca makes for wonderfully soft items.
Manos del Uruguay, the Hands of Uruguay, is a non-profit organization which assembles women in cooperatives scattered throughout the countryside of Uruguay. The aim of this World Fair Trade Organization is to bring economic and social opportunities to rural women. No two skeins are alike, the yarn is dyed in small batches so there are no dye lots.
