Manos del Uruguay Cotton Stria

Manos Cotton Stria is a soft, 100% cotton from the folks at Manos del Uruguay. Kettle dyed in stunning colors, you'll love working this yarn into garments as well as accessories. Don't miss out on this closeout! 

Manos Cotton Stria yarn is a super soft Peruvian cotton that is hand dyed in large kettles to create a marbleized, subtly striated effect.  No two skeins are exactly alike and there are no dye lots.  We therefore recommend buying enough yarn to complete a project.  If there is a strong variation in color between skeins, alternate 2 rows from one skein with two rows from another to create an overall blended effect.

    I bought this yarn for socks and I just love it. The striping is so subtle and luxurious! It's beautiful and wavy.

    I bought this yarn to make a cardigan. I tried three different patterns but as I worked on it, the piece stretched so much that I gave up. I am not a novice knitter so I was disappointed. I don't think I'll ever use it.

                Comments about Manos del Uruguay Cotton Stria:

                This yarn is so easy to knit up. I just completed a baby sweater and the knitted fabric is so pretty. A few washes and I bet it looks like chenille. It stretches, so large garments probably wouldn't work - adult sweaters, for example - but I would definitely buy this again.

                      I used this yarn in several colors to knit an afghan. Colors are gorgeous and it has held up well. Beautiful soft yarn.
