Manos del Uruguay Lace

Manos Lace is an opulent blend of baby alpaca, silk, and a touch of cashmere, for your finest heirloom lace projects. With 439 yards, you could get a lovely shawlette, or use two skeins to create a wonderful lace shawl.

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.

        • Shrug

        Comments about Manos del Uruguay Lace:

        I used this yarn together with a lace weight cashmere, Superior, to knit a lace shrug for my daughter's wedding. Together these yarns created a wonderful, soft , flow-y garment! Lovely to knit with!

        I received great service from WEBS. Don't be afraid to use them (after your LYS of course!)

          A very good yarn for an avid scarf knitter. It is not only soft but also nice and warm. Perhaps a little pricey.

          Comments about Manos del Uruguay Lace:

          This yarn is so wonderful, I plan to order more of it. It's so soft and rich feeling, plus it's so easy to work. The color is called, "Watered Silk." It has a delicate dye coloring & patterning that doesn't put a fixed, color pattern on top of the pattern in the work--if you know what I mean. And believe me, it feels like silk. My scarf isn't even finished & already I'm getting positive comments. I love it!

              You can't ever go wrong with any yarn by this company. It's always a dream to work with. The lace weight has a beautiful drape. I knitted a cowl out of a heavier weight and it felt yummy around my neck. You could easily substitute this for cashmere and not be disappointed. One of the questions was, "Was this a gift?". I would never be able to give this away.

                Comments about Manos del Uruguay Lace:

                I am using this lace wool for scarves for my friends. It knits up beautifully on size 4 (US) needles. I've been through the colors carried at my LYS, but The Yarn Co. has a broad range available.

                There are many lace weight wools available, but I admire the idea behind this company, so I buy Manos de Uruguay to support this women's cooperative.

                  Words cannot merely describe how beautiful this yarn is to knit with, it is so soft it glides along the needles very easily. I am currently using it to knit a baby shawl for my 1st grandchild and it is turning out so beautiful. I can't wait to see he/she wrapped in it!! Can't recommend it enough.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  As always goods arrived here in Australia very promptly.
