Manos Silk Blend Violets
Silk Blend is a lovely blend of soft silk and wool lightly spun into a single ply yarn. It is perfect for garments or accessories. Each skein is Kettle dyed in either tonals or multicolours. It is really a joy to work with.
Manos Del Uruguay was founded by a group of women aiming to promote social and economic development in the rural areas of Uruguay. The aim was to produce handicrafts using traditional methods and to market them for sophisticated markets. The craftswomen are the owners of Manos Del Uruguay and have set up not-for-profit organizations for rural women, to allow them to develop their communities without the need to leave their homes.
