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.

      Comments about Manos del Uruguay Maxima:

      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.

        Comments about Manos del Uruguay Maxima:

        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.

              I love the variegated hues of color in the natural fabric. I love that the purchase of the yarn gives back to the community that makes it. I love the warmth and hand of the finished product. I made a blanket scarf out of it and it's beautiful. Tons of compliments already.

              There are some irregularities in the way it's spun due to the hands that spin it. Wasn't a problem for me.
