LE 15 – Woodsy

Category: Clasica LE Colorways

The fifteenth installment of the Manos del Uruguay Limited Edition Clasica colorway has woodsy browns with hints of mossy green and gold.  Our stock of this yarn has been quite popular and it has all been sent out to stores across the country.  If you like it and you find it at your local yarn shop, buy it while you can!

Wool Clasica is hand-spun and kettle-dyed. With 138 yards per skein, you have many pattern options with one or two skeins! Here are a few that caught our eye recently on Ravelry.

From left to right: Celery’s Picky Pants, RedScot’s Cabled Glovelets, and pb1138’s crochet Gathered Headband.

LE12: Bold strength

Category: Clasica LE Colorways

Don’t you just love a vibrant color? September’s Limited Edition Clasica colorway is just that.  Bright, bold blue shares the skein with the subtle, yet still strong, red.  This is the 12th installment of Santiago’s exclusive colorways, be sure to add it to your stash now!

Here are a few 1 to 2 skein projects that call for Manos del Uruguay Wool Clasica to inspire you. Why not make something for yourself or get a head start on making gifts for the holidays?

The Perfect Winter Hat is a free crochet pattern, using the “Single Spike Crochet” stitch that will highlight the variations in LE12.  Linen stitch, used here in the Linen Stitch Cowl, creates an interesting woven effect. Have you considered using Wool Clasica for socks? Using the Socks 101 pattern found in the Knitalong book calls for one to two skeins of Clasica to create an intentionally rustic looking pair that are fast and satisfying.

Our Ravelry group, Facebook page, and Twitter @ManosYarns are always open and we look forward to hearing from you!

LE11: Gold Rush

Category: Clasica LE Colorways

The latest Clasica Limited Edition Colorway is sure to brighten your day! Whether you choose to stock up now and create a quick project for Fall, or plan to save it for a dreary winter day, add this yarn to your stash today! These unique colorways are produced in small batches and are only available as long as they are in stock.

Wool Clasica is hand-spun and kettle-dyed.  The natural variations in texture and color produce a rich knitted fabric ideal for outerwear; the yarn takes particularly well to simple stitch patterns and felts beautifully.  Here are a few finished objects and WIPs from Ravelry members to inspire you!

Stefaniegrrr whipped up the Wavy Cable Boot Toppers (a free pattern on the Fairmount Fibers website) to perfectly coordinate with her boots. The Cross Stitch Scarf, worked up here by KnittingFoolKerry, is a great way to let the colorway speak for itself.

Previous & current LE colorways are posted on Ravelry, Facebook and the Fairmount Fibers Website.

LE10: Purple Prize

Category: Clasica LE Colorways

This is a milestone, the tenth Clasica LE Colorway is here! The depth of the purple tones is striking, and you are sure to enjoy seeing them emerge as you use this yarn. Be sure to purchase enough for your projects, these truly are produced in small batches!

We spotted these projects on Ravelry using Manos del Uruguay Wool Clasica. Each takes only one or two skeins of yarn and would be just right for LE10!

OCTOPUSSSS is a neck warmer or wrist warmer pattern designed by Saskia de Feijter as part of a kit, but the pattern is available for purchase separately.

The Instant Infinity crochet cowl pattern by Kathleen Rogers uses 2 skeins held together and basic crochet stitches to create this unisex design.

These Wood Hollow Mittens, a Kristen Kapur design, were knit by user PuffySheep for a charity project.
