Manos del Uruguay Maxima

Manos Maxima is a single ply 100% merino wool, dyed in the spectacular colors Manos is known for. This soft, worsted weight yarn is perfect for bright, cozy garments, accessories, and projects for the home.

Maxima is hand dyed in large kettles to create a marbleized, subtly striated effect that forms a rich palette of glorious colors. No two skeins are exactly alike and there are no dye lots. Colors may vary greatly.

We recommend buying enough yarn to complete a project. If there is great difference between skeins, we recommend working two rows  from one skein and two rows from another skein to give an overall blended effect. Made in Uruguay.

I use this wool for creating small, beautifully colored, felted handbags. The selection of colors available and the artful combination in a single skein create a lovely, mottled surface that can be left as is, or felted over. One skein provides over 200 yards of fiber, sufficient for a small clutch or handbag. FELTS BEAUTIFULLY!

I love this yarn and have purchased it many times from a local store. Lured by the "bulk" price at Webs, I purchased 6 skeins of various colors to make Christmas gifts--cowls, mittens and scarves. Unfortunately each skein contained "splits", something not found in my previous purchases. Very disappointing!

        Fell in love with this beautiful yarn! Using it to make cable squares for an afghan. The beauty is in the color quality. The variation adds character. Soft enough to make a blanket for my Grandson,

            I am using this yarn to make a Pentecost liturgical stole for a minister friend. Initially I started the project with a sport weight but being new to lacework it was a disaster. I saw the Maxima in the store when I was in Northampton in May and bought 1 hanks. I ended up needing a third so mail ordered it. This yarn is soft. It slides smooth on the needles and the pattern looks gorgeous.

            Service and delivery comments:

            It took 3 days to leave Northampton but I got it the next day (I live in CT).
