We are excited to present a new yarn in the Manos del Uruguay line. It is currently making its way to local yarn shops online and around the country! Fino is a 30% silk, 70% extrafine merino wool blend, kettle dyed in a new dye process that yields complex, subtle, tonal colors.
Currently Fino is available in eleven colorways for customers in North America; Antique Lace and Watered Silk are shown above. The yardage is a very generous 490 yards per 100g skein, allowing for many options in choosing a pattern for this 4-ply, fingering / light sport-weight yarn. It is never too early to start thinking of your next knitting or crochet project, maybe something special for you after the holiday rush is over?
Elegant and refined, Fino combines the softness of merino wool with the lustre of silk in a lightweight yarn that’s perfect for heirloom accessories or luxurious garments. We have selected a few patterns to inspire you: (from left to right) Honey cowl, Klimt Squared, and Haruni.
Please keep in mind no two skeins are exactly alike and, as with all of Manos del Uruguay yarns, there are no dye lots. Colors may vary greatly from one skein to another. 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. We are looking forward to hearing your thoughts about Fino and seeing what you create! Please join us in our Ravelry group, on our Facebook page or Tweet us @manosyarns!
