Manos Maxima

Manos Maxima

A plump and lush single-ply worsted weight in great colors, Maxima is a cuddly yarn with lots of possibilities. Freshy used it in the Churchmouse Boyfriend Cap for her father and he loved the softness. Perfect for beginners: It's easy to work with and will produce a beautiful first project. We're not sure how the women at the Manos del Uruguay Cooperative manage to make the Maxima colors so deep and enticing, but they've proven themselves to be masters at it. 

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!

100% Extrafine Merino wool; 100g, 219 yds(200m); 18-20 sts = 4"/10cm on US 6-8 (4-5mm). Hand wash.
