Manos Del Uruguay Yarn

Fairtrade yarn from Uruguay

Manos del Uruguay Yarn was created in 1968 to provide jobs for women in their rural hometowns in Uruguay. It is still committed to the same objective and was made a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation in 2009. 


Manos de Uruguay spin and dye their yarns in cooperatives located in the small towns of Uruguay's countryside. Each Manos skein has a tag with the name of the artisan who made it and the cooperative location.  


We are proud to be UK stockists of Manos Del Uruguay yarns and have specially selected our favourite 4ply yarn called Alegría which means "joy" in Spanish, and that's just what this hand painted yarn is, a true colour celebration!  They are hand dyed to produce a rich colour palette

                                                                   with subtle irregularities which the hand of each artisan gives to it. 


                                                                     If you are interested in other colours or weights, please contact us and we will endeavour to help.
