Pattern Suggestions
Marina Circle Cowl: free pattern - one skein project
Traffic Furniture: the pattern is written for fingering weight but it works beautifully with Marina

Siempre Poncho: crochet - more of a top than a poncho

Impact
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.
