Pattern Suggestions:

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.

Beautiful stitch definition

I am loving knitting with this yarn. It's smooth, a slight shine and sharp stitch definition. The knitted piece is looking so pretty and the drape is turning out to be perfect for my shawl in progress.

Magnificent Manos

All Manos yarn is special, I think. Not only for the quality, but for what it represents. I have been a Manos fan for years.
Fino is especially nice. So soft and such great colors. My new favorite is String Theory’s own colorways in the minis. I’ve used them once already and have a new set in my yarn basket waiting for my next project. I’m I. My happy place when I knit with Fino.

Fino is fantastic

Fino is a lovely yarn-so soft and easy to work with. I've used it a couple of times, and have a few skeins stashed for future projects.
