Manos del Uruguay Fino is a soft, shiny single-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.

I'm incredibly disappointed in this yarn. It feels great, but the color is so drab and uniform. It doesn't look hand-dyed at all. It was so far off from the picture, that I thought I'd been shipped the wrong color, so I checked the tag and it was the correct yarn. Instead of the vibrant variegated red in the picture, it's an burnt burgundy all the way through. I'm not inspired by this yarn at all, which is disappointing based on the price.

        Comments about Manos del Uruguay Fino:

        This is the first lightweight yarn I have used. I'm glad I splurged for Fino. I chose the Watered Silk color. It is perfect, just enough pink, very subtle. I couldn't believe how soft it is. I look forward to using it again, maybe Rainwater.

        The yarn is single ply and lovely to work with. No splitting or snagging. It freely moves across the needles and has a wonderful sheen to it.

          I had always placed a high esteem on the Manos brand but had never actually tried Fino before. It lived up to all my expectations and was a pleasure to work with. I will definitely reach for it again.

            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.

            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.

              Comments about Manos del Uruguay Fino:

              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.
