Fans of Manos del Urugay yarns might already know that with each purchased skein of Manos del Uruguay yarn you will be helping a woman to support her family. As we celebrate Fair Trade in February, we’d like to present the people who are behind the yarn and have signed the tag on the yarn you have selected and purchased for your project.
This is Lides.
She is a member of the Manos cooperative at Dragon, where she spins Wool Clasica.
This is Ana.
She is a member of the Manos cooperative at Dragon, where she dyes the yarn that Lides spun.
The Dragon Cooperative is located in Placido Rosas, Uruguay.
Our next post will bring this yarn from Uruguay to Fairmount Fibers, LTD. the North American Distributor based in Philadelphia, PA.
