Manos del Uruguay

Knitting not only helps to beautify the world, it can make it also a little better: Manos del Uruguay is proof of that. For more than 40 years, women in Uruguay have been hand-dyeing knitting yarns as part of the co-operative called "the hands of Uruguay". This project was started to give women in poor rural areas work with fair conditions and pay. Today, 250 women work in 19 different towns in Uruguay, creating beautifully colored yarns, reflecting their Latin American traditions in every piece. They have truly excited knitters around the world with their yarn and Martina has created an very special colorway together with them for Strickmich! Club (Martina's Berry Pie) to match her pattern "Smooth Sailor".
