Fino is the newest yarn from Manos del Uruguay. "Fino" means "fine" in Spanish - so perfectly named because Fino is a finer version (fingering weight) of our favorite Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend Yarn. It's the same luxurious, kettle dyed blend of extrafine Merino wool and silk. With 490 yards per skein, Fino is perfect for knitting shawls, fingerless wrist warmers, socks, and sweaters.
Manos Fino is Yarn with a Purpose
Each skein of Manos Fino Yarn has been hand signed by the artist so you will know who created it and what village it came from. Since Manos del Uruguay is a cooperative that is proudly part of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), you are contributing to a helping a woman support her family. Your yarn has been hand-made rather than mass produced in an environment that promotes fair payment, safe and healthy work conditions, better environmental practices, and gender equality.
