Collection: Manos del Uruguay Yarn

Manos del Uraguay is a non-profit organization made up of 12 cooperatives scattered among small villages in Uruguay's countryside. Founded in 1958 to improve the quality of life for rural Uruguayan women, not just through income, but through opportunities for personal growth and independence while still staying close to their families, roots and traditions.

Manos is devoted to taking care of the traditions of Uruguay, using wool found close at hand. All of the yarns are hand dyed in big pots heated by wood kettles. Small batches create wonderful, one-of-a-kind colors that are bright and wild, yet full of nuances and variations. Each skein is a testimony of a particular moment.

Manos del Uruguay has been a member of the World Fair Trade Organization since 2009. 
Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. 
As a Fair Trade organization, they are are engaged in supporting producers, raising awareness and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of international trade.

We love Manos for both for their mission and for their amazingly soft, uniquely colorful yarns. They may feel like a splurge, but when you see the name of the woman who spun or dyed the yarn you've purchased, remember that you are helping to support time-honored traditions and women artisans.
