I only did my sample but wow! The color is amazing and the effect of the different shades is better than I hoped for. Really beautifull and soft.

Beautiful yarn with nice luster

Written by JCox on 21st Feb 2015

I love this yarn. I purchased 6918 Camo it to make toques for my grandsons. From the look of it on the hank, I wasn't sure it would knit up to look the way I wanted it to but it's a great look. I am using a simple k1, p1 pattern on a US 2 needle. The feel of the yarn is so nice, softer once it is knit up than it feels on the hank. This is the first time I've knit with Manos del Uruguay. I love the stories behind the women and will be buying more of this in the future.

I haven't knit with this yet, but I am really impressed with how pretty it is in person. I love the colorways and am sure I will order more. I like to knit with single ply.

This is my favorite yarn from Noble Knits. I have bought these just to have around... They are that good! Someday I will make one of my fave one-skein projects from those I've purchased. I really love them for mitts, cowls and hats. Thanks Noble Knits for great service, great prices and great selection. Right now, can't wait to make a cowl from Foil & Highlighter!

My favorite worsted single

Written by Robbin K. on 19th Jun 2014

I love Maxima - it has taken the place of Malabrigo worsted as my favorite worsted single. It is springy and squishy and very soft, and I love the trendy neon color selection. There is much less of a thick-thin effect than with Malabrigo, and the colors are more consistent, while still retaining that hand-dyed character. Just a joy to work with and wear.

Love, love, love this yarn - it is soo soft and beautiful - I'm in the process of making a simple shawl! The feel is wonderful~


Written by Beth Harrington on 6th Apr 2014

This yarn is comparable to another single ply yarn by another brand and the colors and softness are wonderful. Great saturation, texture and softness.

I can't wear common wools so finding something wool that doesn't create problems is a dream. The colours are saturated and work together very well. Easy to knit, comfortable to wear. Just enough of a difference in weight throughout to give a hand spun feeling without being enough to impact on the gauge. Love it

Amazing Colors

The slight color variations in the yarn provide rich, deep, natural hues. A dream to knit with and wear.
