Manos del Uruguay Maximia is a worsted-weight, single ply, 100% extrafine Merino wool yarn with approximately 219 yards per 100 gram skein. This soft, worsted-weight yarn is dyed in large kettles to create a marbleized, subtly striated effect that forms a rich palette of glorious tonal colors. Perfect for cozy garments, accessories, and home projects.
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.
