Manos del Uruguay Lace

Manos Lace is an opulent blend of baby alpaca, silk, and a touch of cashmere, for your finest heirloom lace projects. With 439 yards, you could get a lovely shawlette, or use two skeins to create a wonderful lace shawl.

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.

Gives a lot of bang for the buck!

The completed project was donated to the Woodlawn Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington for the silent auction for Jungle Party.

I used this yarn in a deep teal or torquoise color. After completing my shawl, I handwashed it in cold water with a wool wash product. To my dismay, the color began to bleed, so I promptly wrapped it in a towel then began to block it. As I pulled the fabric across the top edge of the shawl, the yarn broke, necessitating later repair. Maybe I just handled this wrong, but I don't know what I could have done differently.

        Comments about Manos del Uruguay Lace:

        I was looking for a black-blue variegated lace weight natural fiber yarn. I chose the color "Orla" which has scattered highlights to break the darkness and catch the eye of the observer. This product was exactly what I was searching far. My expectations were far exceeded when I noticed how soft and bright the yarn really is. The photo on the website displays the color hues accurately; however, this yarn has much more sheen than the website photos capture. I will definitely explore other colors in this same yarn.

          This yarn is just amazing! So so so soft! I am currently knitting a scarf as my first lace project and I just love the yarn. It is super easy to knit and not to slippery.
          Even though it is a tiny yarn I believe the scarf will be warm.

            Comments about Manos del Uruguay Lace:

            The yarn was part of a birthday present from a family member who knows my partialities very well. I'm knitting a summer cardigan, the wide lace collar & band in this yarn. Not yet finished, so I can't comment on how it will wear. I hope it doesn't rub too much, which alpaca can do. It's lovely to work with, easy to knit and very forgiving. The colours I have blend look really good together. It feels wonderful and I'm looking forward to wearing it. I was surprised at the weight, I'd have expected a bit finer in a laceweight; it feels more like a 3-ply to me (that's like a light fingering). The yarn shows the lace pattern very nicely. I do recommend needles with a good point to them, especially for lace.

                I used this yarn together with a lace weight cashmere, Superior, to knit a lace shrug for my daughter's wedding. Together these yarns created a wonderful, soft , flow-y garment! Lovely to knit with!

                I received great service from WEBS. Don't be afraid to use them (after your LYS of course!)
