About Manos del Uruguay: Since 1968, Manos del Uruguay has been working hard to improve the quality of life of Uruguay's rural women by making jobs that provide not just an income, but also an opportunity to personally develop and gain independence, and keep their roots and traditions close to their community and families. Every skein has a tag with the artisan signature and the name of the village where the cooperative is located. This help us remind that behind each poncho, throw or scarf, there is a woman, a story.

All time favourite yarn makes the best shawls, cowls and sweaters. Light and so soft, the colours are gorgeous. I received my yarn very quickly and beautifully wrapped. Thank you Saltwater Purls.
The yarn was absolutely beautiful to work with. Stitch definition is amazing!! And the shipment arrived quickly. Thank you very much for your customer service!!
I love the yarns from manos del uruguay-the Fino is very Fine!! I love what this women's cooperative is all about and I like to support what they do. This order did not disappoint-I ordered 1 skein of one of the colorways (and wish I had ordered 3 more!!) and the 2nd colorway I ordered is gorgeous. I have shawl patterns in the lineup for them and possibly a scarf. The order was delivered super fast.
