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.

Available online only. Local customers can choose the In-Store Pickup option when placing their order online.

    I made a Range scarf/warp with it and love working with this yarn. It feels good on your hands and knits up beautifully. I am currently working on a sweater with it and love the way it's coming out. I bought more to make another sweater with it.

        I used this to knit an Indian Cross Stitch cowl which came out just beautiful. I have always loved Manos and this is no exception. I enjoyed learning the Indian cross stitch with the help of you tube. I'm planning to make another for a friend right away!

          Beautiful variegated wool - I purchased some locally and some on your website. Although crafted by 2 different artists, the dye match is undetectable from hank to hank. I have 20 hanks that are being used to craft a 'mermaid' afghan for my grand daughter in the alligator/crocodile stitch. This wool is a true pleasure to work with. I am also very happy to support the mission of Manos del Uruguay and wish them continued success.

          Really wished I didn't have to lose the discount level on my order when I had to return one of these yarns. If they can list colors in the yarns for their pickers, they should have the colors listed for online customers.

              I use this yarn specifically for a new baby gift / first year hat that parents seem to really like. The pattern screams baby and the yarn is sheer indulgence. True, it is not machine washable, but the pattern has a chin strap and it's a hat so drooling or spit up seems less of an issue. I gift it with a sample of two of Soak or Eucalan. Parents like the Fair Trade aspect too. The white and the pastel blue are great. For some reason the petal pink is minimally unevenly dyed, but that gives it an old timey look. It is just so very soft and so fast to work up that I have found no equal.

                I buy A LOT of yarn. My local yarn store knows my pets' names. This is one of my 2 favorites for all hats, gloves, and scarves. It's even, knits well, and looks amazing. The colors offered by this yarn also make it great for mixing with other types of yarn, my favorite being alpaca or mohair. My only problem with it is that I keep running out and having to buy more!
                I don't' really write many reviews, but this yarn is worth the time it took me to write so I can let others know how wonderful it is either as a starter yarn for newbies or for that special project you've been dreaming up.
                Highly recommend.
