So, first up are my top 6 cat related awesomeness finds from Knit Picks. (ad links below)

  1. How adorable is this Professor Meow Sweater? He looks so surprised and I love the yarn they used. It gives real dimension to the cat rather than using a flat black.cat3

Manos Del Uruguay Serena Yarn Review

manos del uruguay serena yarn
The color is so pretty!

Check out this beautiful yarn that I received from Fairmount Fibers, the Manos Del Uruguay Serena yarn.

First off, the colorways in this yarn are amazing! They have literally over 40 different colors to choose from. The yarn is kettle dyed so it has that nice heathered look that makes your projects looks so special.

How pretty is that?

The yarn itself, is a unique blend of 60% baby alpaca and 40% pima cotton. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that combination before it is so interesting. It is great for scarves and shawls because it will drape beautifully. And it is so squishy soft! See my video below for some swatches I worked up in the yarn and how I liked working with it.

Here’s some more info on the yarn:

Yardage: Approx. 170 yds / 155 m per 1.75 oz / 50 g
Weight: Sport to DK
Gauge: Serena’s gauge is very versatile, from 4 1/2 stitches per inch (SPI) all the way up to 7 SPI
Needle Size: US 4 – 6 / 3.5 – 4 mm
Care Instructions: Hand wash in cool water. Dry flat.

Another awesome thing about this yarn is that the name of the company Manos Del Uruguay translates to Hands of Uruguay which is exactly who makes it.  Manos yarns are made by hand by skilled artisans in cooperatives located throughout Uruguay. Every skein purchased helps a woman in Uruguay support her family, and each skein is signed by the artisan so that you know who made your yarn and which village it came from.

An artist at work.

2018 is the 50th anniversary of Manos yarns! Fairmount Fibers we will be celebrating with some giveaways and special colorways so you might want to go follow them on their social media so you get notifications when the giveaways are happening.

You can find them on FacebookTwitterInstagramPinterest and Ravelry.

Fairmount Fibers is the North American Distributor of Manos del Uruguay yarns who provided this product for review. They have a beautiful website with tons of free patterns. Like this one that was made in Serena yarn.
