Fair Trade from Start to Finish (Part 2)

Category: Fair Trade News & Topics

In today’s post we are bringing you the second part of the story of Manos del Uruguay yarn. We started in the Manos Cooperative of Dragon where Wool Clasica is spun and dyed.

This is Collin.


After Ana has dyed the yarn that Lides spun, it comes to the Fairmount Fibers warehouse in Philadelphia, where Collin unpacks it. He also repacks it for shipment to yarn shops all over the U.S.


This is Nicole.


After Collin has repacked the yarn that Lides spun and Ana dyed, Nicole skeins it up and puts it on the shelf at Rosie’s Yarn Cellar. Here the yarn is ready to be selected for that special project. Check back for our next post, where you’ll see the knitter and finished object!
