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.
Soft and shiny, Silk Blend gives good stitch definition to cables and other texture patterns. Its jewel-like colors work beautifully in stranded colorwork designs.
