Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend Space Dyed

Manos Silk Blend Space Dyed is a luxurious blend of 30% silk and 70% extrafine merino. This yarn is incredibly soft and the silk adds a slight sheen. Manos combines beautiful colors that will make any project, knit or crochet, one of a kind. 

Manos Silk Blend Space Dyed 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.

    The silk mix makes this yarn head above shoulders to many others. The stitch definition is just beautiful, and it drapes so beautifully you'll want to re-knit all your sweaters from this. My son chose this particular yarn for a scarf without any other understanding of the 'science of fibers', solely based on the feel of it. Whatever you make out of this, will become a cherished heirloom. I haven't washed it yet, so can't really comment on that. It airs out well in brisk moist air, and holds its shape well.

    Pilled within two uses of the sweater. I think this yarn would be better suited to smaller garments with less friction. Its also lost the silky sheen that attracted me to it originally

            I bought the purple rain colorway because I thought it looked so beautiful on-screen. I was not disappointed when it arrived in the mail and it helped me create a beautiful and soft infinity scarf for my mum who cannot wear synthetic fibers.

                  Comments about Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend Space Dyed:

                  Just finished making a slim cowl from a book by Margaret Hubert -- she recommended a 100% silk "mid-weight" yarn, but I chose the Manos Silk Blend in Stellar. The result is stunning, almost like statement jewelry. The yarn almost glows without being 'shiny,' and it's wonderfully soft yet not totally limp the way pure silk can be.

                  Stellar is such a deep color blend that it might be overpowering in a sweater, but it is head-turning as an accent. I can't wait to try other colors, probably for a sweater because the combination of softness and rich, yummy color just makes me want to wrap myself in it!

                    I have used this yarn to make several fingerless gloves and love the results. It knits up quickly and they make the best gifts. The yarn is so soft and the color coices are fabulous!
