Spotlight on Manos del Uruguay Feliz
If you’re looking for a lighter weight yarn for your Spring or Summer projects, try Feliz, our blend of superwash merino and modal. Modal is a plant-based fiber that is breathable, resistant to shrinking, and adds a sheen to the yarn. This is a yarn that is soft in hand, has a lovely drape and stitch definition. In Spanish, Feliz means “happy” and you’ll find that happiness working with this no-fuzz, drapey, next-to-skin soft, easy-care yarn. Here are a few patterns and projects to inspire you!
Feliz is featured in two patterns from our Spring 2021 collections. Azalea, by Elizabeth Smith, features bottom-up construction, simple details and a silhouette and drape perfect for spring layering. Elizabeth is currently hosting an Azalea KAL and we look forward to seeing many finished tops in the coming weeks!
Fairmount Fibers, the US Distributors of Manos del Uruguay yarns, offers free patterns to support this yarn! Choose from The Interesting Bits scarf, Thatch-Eaves poncho, Conspiring hat, Sweet Kernel beret, Twined Flowers scarf, and the Nautilo wrap.
We love to see the notification on Facebook, Instagram, and in Ravelry that we have been tagged in your photos and projects! In browsing finished objects, these caught our attention. (Please note: all pattern links are Ravelry links.)
Feliz is available in over 25 variegated and solid colorways. Four new colors this season include (above, top to bottom) Dragon Fruit, Bachata, Cantaloupe, and Lapis Lazuli. Look for them at your favorite local yarn shop! Click here to search for a stockist near you.
