Manos del Uruguay Marina is a lace-weight, single-ply, 100% superwash Merino wool yarn with a fantastic 874 yards per 100 gram skein. The incredible softness and gorgeous hand-dyed colors of Marina make this a perfect choice for luxurious, lacy shawls and accessories. No two skeins are alike, the yarn is dyed in small batches so there are no dye lots.
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.
