Manos Silk Blend Semi Solid is a gorgeous combination of 30% silk and 70% extrafine merino. The semi-solid colors take your stitch patterns to the next level. Manos Silk Blend Space Dyed is incredibly soft and the silk adds a slight sheen.

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.

Knit a stranded colorwork sweater, and loved the subtle color variations with each skein. Soft and light, made a comfortable sweater weight for our moderate climate. Wool is not scratchy, and I'm sensitive to that. Looking forward to another project with this!

dye lot very inconsistent

I had to buy two extra balls of this yarn. The original dye lot was lovely dark blue. The next two were green - a nice shade of green but still green.

    This yarn is wonderful to knit with. It is wonderfully soft, almost like cashmere. I really was sad when the project was finished.

        This yarn is a delight to knit with. I used two skeins for a cabled scarf. I did the knitting at Doctors waiting rooms and got a lot attention..people wanted to touch it. The stitches came out superb! It's a gift that I would like to wear myself...lol

            Feels great as I'm knitting a sweater for a gift. The yarn also seems to make my stitching more even, so far no big spaces between rows.

            I used this yarn to make hadnwarmers. It is very soft and warm. It knits up easily. The only downside is that it does shed some.

                Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Silk Blend Semi Solid:

                I used this yarn to make a shawl for a gift. The color (Oxblood) was gorgeously rich with a touch of sheen from the silk, though I wouldn't say it was shiny at all.

                I bought two batches of the same color and was surprised to find that they matched perfectly, even though they were dyed by different artisans. However, there were some minor differences. The first batch was spun very evenly with almost no discernible changes in thickness, and no knots out of 3 hanks. The second batch was slightly thick and thin, though not too bad. There were also lots of thick parts that were really just partially spun fluff - when I picked off the fluff it was the normal thickness of yarn underneath. Also the 2 hanks from the second batch both had knots.

                In spite of the minor problems with the second batch, it's so nice to knit with this yarn. It's one of my favorite yarns ever and I would definitely buy it again.

                  I made a gorgeous damask cowl with this beautiful yarn. I was so nice to knit with, it's soft, and easy to work a two color project. I can't wait to knit the matching mitts.

                    This yarn is very soft and warm. I needed a hat for a fall trip to Alaska and it is perfect.
