Manos del Uruguay Fino Minis

Product information "Manos del Uruguay Fino Minis"


Aren't they cute? These Mini-Sets out of "Fino" by Manos del Uruguay contain 5 skeins of 20 g each in gorgeous colors that go really well together. Work them up as a gradient or use them for stripes combined with an entire 100 g-skein to make a "Leftie". 

"Fino" is a voluminous, luxurious single-ply with 30% silk and 70% wool (Merino) – great for cowls and shawls that will be worn against the skin, e. g. "Wolkig" or "Heaven & Space". 

At Manos del Uruguay, local women have been spinning and dyeing the most beautiful yarns for forty years. The project was initiated to give women in rural areas the chance to get jobs in the artisanal field with fair pay and a good working environment.

Please note: This yarn is not superwash and prefers to be washed by hand instead of in the woollen cycle in your washing machine.

The sample "Lupino" in our book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions" was made out of one set of these Mini-skeins (color combination: Dorothea).

Match & Move

I just love the “We’re Different”-Grab Bags from Rohrspatz & Wollmeise: Depending on which kind you choose, you will get a combination of a multicolor and a matching semisolid, hand-picked by the dyemaster herself, who has an unmatched sense of color. What shall I say? I was really surprised when I saw that she teamed up a softly variegated brown-grey with a bold and warm red. I just had to give it a try and get my knitting needles moving! So here’s “Match & Move”, a shawl designed to show off the perfect Wollmeise color combination and use up (almost!) an entire grab bag of yarn. My shawl weighs 286 grams. The unusual construction results in kinked stripes that look really interesting when you wear it. The knitting is plain garter stitch and very relaxing, and the shawl is so big and comfy, it is just a dream to wear. Definitely my favorite shawl so far – and I am determined to order another grab bag, be surprised and knit myself one more. Size of the shawl in the pictures: 200 x 50 cm (80 x 20 inches) 286 g of yarn (140 g of color A and 146 g of color B) Wollmeise Colors: Resi and Zimtapfel (both WD)The pattern "Match & Move" is part of Martina Behms book "Strickmich!

Tubularity PDF Download
Language: Deutsch
I like my knitting mindless and simple, preferably without any purl stitches. But I also want the excitement of vibrant colors – and a useful, versatile result! If you are like me, you will love “Tubularity”: It is a long tube (3-dimensional) that you can either pull over your head and wear as very warm and cozy neckwarmer (and hood, if you like). Alternatively, you can sling it around and fasten it with a button. The color combination is hand-picked by Miss Babs, who offers her ultrasoft “Yummy Toes” fingering weight yarn in kits with seven matching mini-skein. Each skein has 133 yards, and you use up each color until you join the next one at the beginning of a round. Measurements: Length 115 cm (46 in), width 32 cm (13 in). The many different ways to wear Tubularity are shown in this video: TubularityEnglish

Spiral Escape
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
This is the third pattern of Strickmich! Club 2017. Dark alleys, intense colors, unforgettable melodies and a tragic love story – “West Side Story” is one of the biggest music movies of all time, and great to watch while knitting. Preferably something that goes well with the colors and theme of the film, like “Spiral Escape”: A cowl made from a gradient yarn whose colors resemble those of the backgrounds in the movie. The spiraled construction mirrors the iconic fire escape stairs that are a visual theme of the musical and New York City. And this cowl is really easy to knit! Start with a little square and go on in garter stitch, knitting back and forth while forming the spiraled shape on the go by simply knitting two stitches together. No seaming! The last finishing touches are done with a crochet hook. The result is a warm and beautiful cowl in fascinating dark and intense colors, perfect to wear during fall. In this video I talk about the pattern and the yarn: Cast-On-Event-3-2017 from Martina Behm.The pattern "Spiral Escape" is part of Martina Behms book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".

Santaverde Handcreme
I have been searching a long time for the ideal hand lotion for knitting hands. It should feel light and get absorbed quickly while still providing intensive care. In no way should the cream feel sticky or have a strong smell. Add to that the preference for truly certified organic cosmetics and the pickings get slim. Fortunately, the hand cream by Santaverde satisfies all these requirements.  It is made from pure aloe vera juice and rich oils from almond and coconut as well as shea butter and cocoa butter. It takes care of even rough and stressed hands, while feeling great.  The secret of Santaverde: Pure aloe vera juice uniquely rich in active ingredients from their own certified organic cultivation in Andalusia. Santaverde uses the pure juice, instead of the usual main ingredient water, complemented by precious plant oils and extracts, to create a unique effect for the health and beauty of your skin. You can find additional information at: www.santaverde.de Content: 50 mL Inhaltsstoffe (Volldeklaration)Aloe Vera Saft*, Weingeist*, pflanzl.
