Manos del Uruguay Fino
Fino’s single-ply strand combines soft merino wool with a glowing touch of silk. It knits up into a fabric with warmth, drape, and a subtle gleam (it sneaks up on you!). Quiet variegations in tonal hues wash through Fino’s hand-dyed color palette, ranging from soft to saturated.
Manos del Uruguay sends their hand-dyed yarns to us in small batches—and each is an individual work of art! This means that occasionally dye lots may vary, and look a little different from our image. If you have any questions about one of these beautiful skeins, we’re happy to help!
