Manos del Uruguay Maxima

Manos Maxima is a single ply 100% merino wool, dyed in the spectacular colors Manos is known for. This soft, worsted weight yarn is perfect for bright, cozy garments, accessories, and projects for the home.

Maxima 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 use this wool for creating small, beautifully colored, felted handbags. The selection of colors available and the artful combination in a single skein create a lovely, mottled surface that can be left as is, or felted over. One skein provides over 200 yards of fiber, sufficient for a small clutch or handbag. FELTS BEAUTIFULLY!

    I love this yarn and have purchased it many times from a local store. Lured by the "bulk" price at Webs, I purchased 6 skeins of various colors to make Christmas gifts--cowls, mittens and scarves. Unfortunately each skein contained "splits", something not found in my previous purchases. Very disappointing!

          I ordered this yarn in Sea Urchin and it is a beautiful purple that stripes with a darker tone of the same color as you knit. This yarn is so soft and comforting--I just love it! I also ordered and knitted the recommended pattern "Ricardito", and it is simply gorgeous. If your looking to make a gift for someone special, this is it!

            I discovered Maxima by luck--the colors are so vibrant and the yarn is great to work with--have never found anything I do not like about it! I will be trying other weights by Manos for sure

            • Ricardito Cowl Pdf

            Comments about Manos del Uruguay Maxima:

            Gorgeous. More beautiful and softer than I expected. Single ply so was very hard to separate for winding into a ball. Used winder but not swift -- separated it a few yards at a time, sometimes stuck like knots. More splits than I expected. Colors grand. I bot Chrysanthemum, Fresh Water, and UltraMarine -- all gorgeous. Used Ricardito Cowl for three friends. Success.

              Made the Valley Yarns Curling Cowl (#538) with this yarn in several colors (Meltaway Mint, Cactus Flower, Reindeer) and can't wait to give it as Christmas gifts! Am sure they will be well received!

              Color range is really nice and seems to be updated yearly. Soft, and gauge is very consistent throughout. I am scared of washing it though as I think this would felt very badly.

                Love to knit with this yarn, soft and warm. I was making a scarf as a gift and I found a hard to get color at WEBs. I was really happy with the customer service.

                          The dye work is so unique. If you are knitting a larger item that requires multiple hanks, please knit with two hanks at the same time to ensure color variation is evenly distributed. I learned that the hard way!
