Manos del Uruguay - Alma

Alma is a pure merino singly ply yarn. So it is simply spun and not twisted. This makes it incredibly soft and gives a great stitch definition. Alma is superwash treated.

Non-twisted yarns are more prone to pilling than twisted ones, so they should not be processed too loosely or for garments with heavy wear. However, for accessories such as shawls, scarves, cuffs, etc., Alma is the perfect choice.

Manos del Uruguay is a unique fair trade project for the women of Uruguay. The cooperative has existed since 1968, enabling women in rural and poor regions of Uruguay to stay on site and feed their families. The company Manos del Uruguay belongs to the women who work there. Manos del Uruguay yarns are more than just knitting wool, they are support and appreciation in a direct way.

The hand dyed yarns are always dyed in trains of 3 kilos. Each skein is unique and is not like any other.

Therefore, before changing the ball, always knit several rows alternately with the new and the old ball so that no strong transitions are visible.
