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.

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.

A soft yarn with a beautiful sheen. Color is gorgeous as is stitch definition. I love the finished project.

The yarn was slightly felted, most likely due to dyeing process, which made it extremely difficult to wind into a ball. There is no problem knitting and only a small problem with ripping out stitches.

Pros

  • Easy To Work With
  • Nice Stitch Definition
  • Soft

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Delicate Drapey Items
    • I Made A Shawl

    Comments about Manos del Uruguay Fino:

    This yarn is marvelous because of the softness and stitch definition. The shawl I made turned out great. I had to take out and redo a few times to find the correct gauge and the yarn held up and was easy to undo with few snags. My only complaint was that the picture for rose water seemed to show quite a bit of white but the yarn I received was almost a uniform light rose, which I decided to go with anyways.

    Comments about Manos del Uruguay Fino:

    I am using size 8 needles with this yarn to make a lacy scarf. The yarn feels wonderful going through my fingers and in the knitted fabric. The tonal shading of the yarn keeps the scarf (and me) interested.

        I was knitting a sweater and ran out of yarn a fellow knitter recommended this website and I was able to purchase enough yarn to finish the sweater. The website has a terrific selection of quality yarns and good prices.

          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

          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.
