Manos del Uruguay is a yarn company with a conscious. The Manos Cooperative was created 40 years ago to help women to develop careers and support their families. Today it proudly holds a WFTO certification. Each skein is signed, so you will know who made your yarn and which village it came from. Buying Manos means you are supporting a hand-crafted rather than mass-produced, and contributing to an economy where the workers control the means of production.
