Manos del Uruguay

Yarn > Manos del Uruguay
Manos is a non-profit organization.  They were created in 1968 to provide jobs to the rural Uruguayan women in their hometowns.  Today, 45 years later, they are still committed to the same objective; to give economic, social and personal development opportunities to the women in Uruguay's countryside.

They combine research and experimentation with traditional techniques and 40 years of experience.  
It is an artisanal process with small dye lots made in pots heated by wood fire or gas.  Their colors are never completely solid; they have beautiful nuances and tone variations.  To achieve their spectacular space-dyed colors they dye the same skein up to 6 times, so as to achieve the dye complexity of a true piece of art.  After being dyed their yarns are sun-dried in their co-op's back yard.  Every skein is unique!
