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 bought the purple rain colorway because I thought it looked so beautiful on-screen. I was not disappointed when it arrived in the mail and it helped me create a beautiful and soft infinity scarf for my mum who cannot wear synthetic fibers.

Unfortunately, the yarn I received in NO WAY looked like the lovely photo on Webs site. It was so utterly different...a real shame, I'd say. They really need to show the skein of yarn as they do in some other photos. In any event, I would never use it and was able to return it.

    Smooth, soft yarn I used for a lace shawl, it will need blocking to get the desired look. I think that it is too soft for lacy look.

        Pilled within two uses of the sweater. I think this yarn would be better suited to smaller garments with less friction. Its also lost the silky sheen that attracted me to it originally
