    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.

        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!

              I've knit 5 "Shoulder Cozy" designed by Churchmouse Yarns & Teas. Four made quick Christmas presents. Yardage was more in some skeins, while a few skeins had no tie offs, others had at least one or two. Super soft once soaked and blocks nicely. If you want color, highly recommend the jewel tones in this yarn.

                I love this yarn! It is so versatile and feels heavenly, both when finished and on my hands as I'm working with it. So far I have only done accessories with it for gifts, but I think it would be wonderful as a medium weight sweater.

                  Yarn was beautiful and knit up quickly! Made a moebius cowl as a gift and it looked great when finished. Two skeins was plenty for the project.

                  This yarn has beautiful jewel tones that are difficult to capture in a photograph - though some skeins may have tiny tie offs, most do not. Blocks nicely and has excellent drape.

                    I love, love, love this yarn! I'm using this to knit a sweater for my daughter and it's coming together beautifully. It's the perfect weight for our mild Southern California winters - she will love the softness and colors of this yarn.

                      Comments about Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend Space Dyed:

                      I made two scarves on knitting looms using this yarn before I learned to actually knit. The first project I made as a knitter was also with this yarn. It is soft, wears well abd drapes beautifully. Knitting with it was lovely- the yarn wasn't so slippery that it fell off the needles but not so fibrous that it gripped. Just about right. The scarf I knit for my daughter turned out well. However, she has terribly sensitive skin and can only wear the scarf with a turtleneck. I can wear it even though I also have sensitive skin- just not as bad as hers. This is my go to yarn, even though I'm having a lot of fun trying other brands as well.
