Manos Milo

Milo is a gorgeous single ply yarn, in a 65% merino and 35% linen blend.

The linen unique nature gives Milo a rustic yet elegant look, with its raw fibers and sophisticated metallic shine.

We love the drape of the finished fabric and find it perfect for season spanning projects such as kerchiefs, shawls and lightweight tops.

Thank you to Fairmount Fibers, North American Distributor of Manos del Uruguay yarns for providing product for review.

A little about Manos: 

Manos yarns are produced by skilled artisans in cooperatives located throughout Uruguay.

Each skein of yarn purchased helps a woman in Uruguay to support her family.

Bonus points for GREAT photography!

Each skein is signed by the artisan so that you know who made your yarn and which village it came from. 

Manos yarn and fiber is certified Fair Trade.
