Knitters and crocheters know with every purchased skein of Manos yarn, you help a woman in Uruguay support her family. Did you know that this commitment extends to the Manos del Uruguay 100% Merino Roving as well? Today we’d like to spotlight several hand-spun projects featuring this fiber.
Hand-spun projects from Ravelry (clockwise from top right) Longpig’s Flame On yarn, Shriekingviolet’s Phoenix, PlutoniumMuffin’s Dragon Cowl inWildflower handspun, Juliecazknits’ The Age of Brass & Steam in Bramble handspun, and AuntieFona’s Fractal Fingering.
We were particularly taken with Gitagiri’s First Handspun Sweater. She spun a braid of Roving in the Abalone colorway, then knit it as stripes with a complementary neutral colored yarn to make the gorgeous sweater above!
Manos Roving allows the spinner to take the Manos colorways they love and create a yarn that is the weight of their choice, maybe a little heavier or lighter, kept as a single or made a 3-ply.
