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.

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.
