We regret that we are not able keep up with winding of our sale yarn & offer this service during the sale

230 yards, Lace weight, 80% Kid Mohair, 20% Nylon

Cabrito is a laceweight kid mohair blend in beautiful space-dyed colors, from soft and subtle to bright and bold.  Use it by itself for a gossamer-light fabric, or pair it with any of our other yarns to add a soft halo and additional warmth.

Manos del Uruguay is a cooperative founded in 1968, begun by five women whose goal was to develop economic opportunities for women in a country where there were, & are still, few opportunities for work. The Manos Cooperatives provide health insurance, retirement pensions, paid vacations & paid maternity leave for their members. Moreover, members enjoy a sense of achievement and of self-determination – the first kindergartens in Uruguay were begun by the Manos Cooperative, to provide childcare for the artisans. In addition to creating yarns for handcrafters, the Manos Cooperatives have continued to produce ready-to-wear pieces for designers and department stores such as Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Nordstrom’s, & Sak’s. We love this easy-care yarn for its deep hand-painted hues
