We just love Manos del Uruguay yarns at StitchCraft. We carry the Clasica, Clasica Multi Colors, Silk Blend Multi Colors and we just added their Clasica Naturals and the new Maxima line.
The Manos Clasica line is a luxury workhorse yarn. Wool Clasica is hand-spun and kettle-dyed. The natural variations in texture and color produce a rich knitted fabric ideal for outerwear; the yarn takes particularly well to simple stitch patterns and felts beautifully. The broad color range is wonderful for home decor projects! We carry (from left to right) the solids, multi's and naturals.

Manos Silk Blend is a luxurious blend of merino wool for softness with silk for luster and drape. Perfect for indoor garments and transitional outerwear, its brilliant palette invites traditional colorwork. The soft heathering of the fiber blend plus the gentle striations of the kettle-dyeing process also give depth and complexity to single-color projects.
