Carnival has come to Churchmouse! Manos del Uruguay’s aran-weight Serpentina has a delicate, twisted effect that mimics festive paper streamers (and it’s after these streamers Serpentina is named!). Manos’ artisans dye the soft, 100% superwash merino wool before hand-spinning it into yarn using a spinning wheel. The result is a charming, thick-and-thin strand with vibrant colors twirling together throughout! Serpentina’s colorways are named after some of the greatest women in history—scientists, artists, activists, and role models all!
Manos del Uruguay sends their hand-dyed yarns to us in small batches—and each is an individual work of art! This means that occasionally dye lots may vary, and look a little different from our image. If you have any questions about one of these beautiful skeins, we're happy to help!
