Spin Your Own Manos

Introducing our latest addition to the Manos line: 100% extrafine merino roving braids hand-dyed in our artisanal co-ops!  Handspinners and needle-felters are in for a treat; not only is this super-soft fiber a pleasure in your hands, it's dyed to match six of our most popular existing colorways.  There's no better way to explore your creativity than making your own yarn; with our new roving, you will embark on a joint project with the artisans who painted it by hand.  As you spin it into yarn, you become a part of the Manos story! If you've ever wanted to make your own Manos, now is your chance.  Here are a few suggestions to get you started:
  • Use your handspun to knit a collar or edging onto a garment made with your favorite Manos yarn.
  • Crochet a coordinating border onto a sweater, blanket or scarf with your handspun yarn.
  • Needle felt embroidered accents onto your felting project
  • Make thrummed mittens with your favorite Manos yarn & colorway
We can't wait to see what everyone makes with our new roving; feel free to leave a comment with your own creative ideas on this blog post! Be sure to ask for it at your local yarn shop.
