Manos del Uruguay is a special brand of hand spun & dyed artisan yarns that supports rural Uruguayan women. Manos is a non-profit organization that was founded to give women jobs, allowing them to be independent & support their families while being able to live in their home villages. Named after accomplished women throughout history, thick & thin Serpentina is as unique as the women who inspired the yarn. Hand-painted Merino tops are handspun into a gorgeous yarn that knits up quickly & feels amazing against skin. Wonderful for hats, mittens, cowls & scarves.
