With each purchased skein of Manos del Uruguay yarn, you will be helping a woman to support her family. Each skein is signed, so you will know who made your yarn and from which village it came. You will be supporting the hand-crafted rather than mass-produced, and contributing to an economy where the workers control the means of production. You, as a handknitter, crocheter or weaver, will be contributing to women's careers in harmony with family life and contributing to the landscape and cultural heritage of Uruguay. Manos is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization.
