Fairmount Fibers, Ltd.
U.S. Distributor of Manos del Uruguay Yarns


Ponchos are topping the trend charts lately! While most ponchos are designed in a traditional rectangle shape with a neck opening, we are seeing more variety in the construction and different weights of Manos del Uruguay yarn being used. Generally larger than shawls, and more forgiving to make than a sweater, they are the perfect accessory to keep you warm all winter long. Poncho Designs in Manos del Uruguay Yarns Here are ponchos designed specifically for Manos del Uruguay yarns. Shown above (top row left to right) Ivy by Jocelyn J. Tunney in Manos Wool Clasica, Montevideo Capelet a free pattern in Manos Maxima, (bottom row left to right)  Vagabond Poncho by Judith Shangold in Wool Clasica, and Lithodora Poncho by Joanne Scrace crocheted in Manos Serena.
