Manos Del Uruguay Maxima Space-Dyed yarn is a snuggly-soft 100% extrafine merino wool, with a light single-ply construction. With its popular worsted-weight gauge, this is a versatile yarn, great for creating cozy accessories like hats, scarves and cowls. Available in a range of rich and beautiful color combinations. Manos yarns are hand-dyed in large kettles following traditions passed down from one generation to the next. There are no dye lots, so no two skeins are exactly alike. Please note that these hanks are packaged in untwisted form. Find out more about knitting with hand-dyed yarns.
