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!
