    About Manos del Uruguay

    Manos del Uruguay has a social aim and are a Non for profit organization. 
They are organized in 12 cooperatives, each one is a workshop located in a small village of Uruguay’s countryside. 


    The artisans are the owners of the company and Manos profits are shared among the cooperatives or re-invested in the organization. The cooperatives have strong bonds with the communities where they are inserted, having a positive impact in society and families is very important for them.

    All of Manos del Uruguays yarns are hand dyed. The artisans use big pots heated by wood kettles, dyeing in small batches creating wonderful colors. 
Our yarns colors are bright and wild, full of nuances and variations. No two skeins are the same, each one is unique, a testimony of a particular moment. Keeping the traditional hand spinning skills alive is very important for us and it allows us to create unique, beautiful yarns.

    Every garment or Yarn has a tag with the artisan signature and the name of the village where the cooperative is located. This helps to remind us that behind each poncho, throw or scarf, there is a woman and a story.
