Elegant and refined, Fino is a gorgeous combination of 70% extrafine merino and 30% silk, making it sumptuously soft with a slight silky sheen. Lovely to knit with, it creates garments that not only keep you warm, they also drape elegantly. Available in a palette of bright and luminous colours. Manos yarns are hand-dyed in large kettles following traditions passed down from one generation to the next. There are no dye lots, so no two skeins are exactly alike.
Manos del Uruguay is a Certified Fair Trade yarn from a Woman’s Cooperative in Uruguay. For over 40 years they’ve been working to transform thousands of lives in Uruguay.
