COLOUR CHART

70% extra fine merino wool and 30% silk, hand dyed in large kettles to create a marbled, subtly striated effect. Available in a rich palette of colours. No two skeins are exactly alike so there are no dye lots.

I recommend that you buy enough yarn to complete your project as skeins can vary. Any variation can be compensated for by using 2 skeins at once, knitting 2 rows from one skein and then 2 from the other skein, running the yarns up the side of your work as you go.

Manos del Uruguay is a non profit organisation which provides work for rural women in small co-operatives around the country, bringing much needed economic and social opportunities.
