The Manos Cooperatives were founded in 1968, begun by five women whose goal was to develop economic opportunities for women in a country where there were, and are still, few opportunities for work.
With each purchased skein of Manos del Uruguay yarn, you will be helping a woman to support her family. Each skein is signed, so you will know who made your yarn, and from which village it came. You will be supporting the hand-crafted rather than mass-produced, and contributing to an economy where the workers control of the means of production.

The yarn is beautiful, and the pattern book is lovely. My only grip is there are 4 shades of blue in the kit and 3 blue shades with some other color instead would have been much better. In a 3x4 set of blocks it is not really possible to separate all the blues the way I would like to.
