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.

Hand-dyed yarns have subtle variations in colors that are natural and may vary from skein to skein. There may be differences between pictures shown and the yarn you receive. To ensure the best results for your project:

  • Buy enough yarn for your entire project at one time.
  • When using hand-dyed yarn in your project work two rows from one skein and two rows from another skein to give an overall blended effect.

If you have any concerns about your hand-dyed yarn, please contact Customer Service for assistance in returning or exchanging your yarn.

Comments about MANOS DEL URUGUAY Maxima:

I love Maxima. It is my go to for mittens. I use size three needles and cast on 40 stitches and go from there. It has great stitch definition and the colors are fun.

      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.

                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.
