Hand-spun, kettle-dyed, fair-traded, Manos del Uruguay Wool Clasica is a very special yarn. The Manos co-operative was founded in 1968 and continues to provide health insurance, retirement pensions, paid vacations and paid maternity leave for their members. From the Manos del Urugay website:With each purchased skein of Manos del Uruguay yarn you will be helping a woman to support her family. Each skein is signed, so you will know who made your yarn, and from which village it came. You will be supporting the hand-crafted rather than mass-produced, and contributing to an economy where the workers control of the means of production. You, as a handknitter, crocheter or weaver, will be contributing to women’s careers in harmony with family life, and contributing to the landscape, and cultural heritage of Uruguay. Manos del Uruguay was recently certified as a World Fair Trade Organization.
