Manos del Uruguay Wool Clasica Semi Solid

Manos Wool Classica Semi Solid is 100% wool in amazing colors. It works up at 3.5-4.5 stitches per inch making it extremely versatile. The solid colors are stunning and could be combined with the semi solids to create even more punch to your project.

Experience the lustrous feel of this yarn hand spun by artisans throughout the Manos del Uruguay cooperatives. 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.

This is my third order of this yarn--three different colors. I have crocheted a granny square afghan and underestimated how much yarn of each color I'd need. This last delivery was especially fast and what a relief! I had just run out of the chocolate. The chocolate has so many color variations in it that I think it would go with almost any color. It is absolutely beautiful and pulls my cream, blue, and green together nicely.

This is NOT a worsted weight (#4) yarn. It is bulky (#5). I'm crocheting a sweater for my husband with this yarn using a size K hook.
There are some skeins that are spun sloppily as it ranges from super fine to mega bulky. These I may not be able to use unless I cut, get rid of the fine areas and weave in the ends (a pain). However there are skeins that are fairly regularly spun and these are quite nice.
I don't think I'll be buying this product again due to it's irregularity. It's really too bad as the mottled color is lovely. I bought the "Sunflower" color and it truly is the color of sunflower petals.

      Comments about Manos del Uruguay Wool Clasica Semi Solid:

      Knitting cushion covers for a vintage rattan love seat, matching lounge chair, and ottoman. Bottoms plus gusset insets will be one color. The top will be a stylized floral: poppies on a contrasting background. The yarn is easy to knit. The colors are interesting yet complementary. Good gauge. Seven pillows to knit. I hope that I finish this project - soon - and that it'll be worth the time and expense.
