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.

        Comments about Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend Space Dyed:

        Just finished making a slim cowl from a book by Margaret Hubert -- she recommended a 100% silk "mid-weight" yarn, but I chose the Manos Silk Blend in Stellar. The result is stunning, almost like statement jewelry. The yarn almost glows without being 'shiny,' and it's wonderfully soft yet not totally limp the way pure silk can be.

        Stellar is such a deep color blend that it might be overpowering in a sweater, but it is head-turning as an accent. I can't wait to try other colors, probably for a sweater because the combination of softness and rich, yummy color just makes me want to wrap myself in it!

          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.
