Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend Semi Solid

Manos Silk Blend Semi Solid is a gorgeous combination of 30% silk and 70% extrafine merino. The semi-solid colors take your stitch patterns to the next level. Manos Silk Blend Space Dyed is incredibly soft and the silk adds a slight sheen.

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.

        as it knits evenly, I found that the sweater did not need blocking or shaping before sewing.

          Comments about Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend Semi Solid:

          I have ordered enough of this yarn to make myself Lilium by Amy Herzog, but was a bit concerned that it would not stand up to the hard wear it will get due to the number of small children I spend most of my time with (I have a 4 & 2 year old, with another due in a few weeks!). Amy suggested I swatch then abuse the swatch as much as possible to test its durability - very sensible! After knitting up and blocking my initial swatch (a bit loose) and letting the kids 'play' with it for a while, I undid it then reknit it at the correct gauge (24 stitches/4") blocked it again and have re-released it into the enthusiastic play-world of our house. After a couple of weeks It's developed a slight halo, but no pilling is evident so far and stitch definition is still good. I will be knitting up Lilium with it, and am very much looking forward to the end product!

            Knit a stranded colorwork sweater, and loved the subtle color variations with each skein. Soft and light, made a comfortable sweater weight for our moderate climate. Wool is not scratchy, and I'm sensitive to that. Looking forward to another project with this!

              I purchased a hank of this from my LYS to swatch before placing an order. While I don't think it will work for my current project, I can't wait to find a use for this yarn. It's both rustic and elegant looking at the same time, and I just want to keep touching it. The color is gorgeous, and there's just the tiniest bit of sheen.

              This yarn is gorgeous and a delight to work with. One skein makes nice fingerless mitts. Unfortunately the photos here do not do the yarn justice!
