Manos del Uruguay Fino

Manos del Uruguay Fino is a soft, shiny  4-ply fingering weight yarn in exquisite hand-dyed colors. The luxurious blend of merino and silk gives Fino a soft hand and gorgeous drape.

Fino 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.

        Comments about Manos del Uruguay Fino:

        So pretty once it's worked up. Love the color variegation. Go with the "work two alternating skeins" suggestion if your item needs more than one and you will love this yarn too.

        Best yarn I've ever used

        By Amy

        from Portland, OR

            Best Uses

              Comments about Manos del Uruguay Fino:

              I'm knitting a cardigan with this yarn and, though I can't wait to wear it, I almost don't want to finish the project because then I'll be done knitting with this yarn! This is, truly, the most delightful yarn I've ever touched or seen. The color is gorgeously saturated, with lighter spots for subtle interest; the slight sheen from the silk is magical; and it just feels so darned good that I almost cannot stop knitting. I also love the generous yardage. This will be my go-to luxury fingering yarn, without question.

              Comments about Manos del Uruguay Fino:

              I bought two skeins of this yarn to make the Cesta Cowl for my daughter. Love the feel of the yarn. It was pricey, but made a beautiful cowl. Contrary to what the pattern said, I only needed one skein so will use the other one for something else.

                    yarn was used to crochet a shawl. There were many flaws in the yarn.

                          I'm using this lovely yarn to knit a small shawl as an international exchange gift. It's soft and silky and the colour saturation is perfect. It's knitting up beautifully and I love the feel of it as it slides through my fingers. The pattern I'm using contains garter stitch, stockinette and lace, and it looks great in all three. I'm going to be very sorry to part with this and I'm sure I'll buy more, both to use as gifts and for myself.

                              I bought this yarn to make a long, wide stockinette cowl, and it's knitting up like a cloud. Lovely!
