Manos del Uruguay
Fair trade yarn hand dyed from Uruguay
The Manos del Uruguay Project: The project supports women who live in the countryside so that they can earn money and stay with their families instead of moving to the slums of Montevideo.
Manos del Uruguay delivers the raw material directly home to these women. Dyeing only happens if orders are placed. This way the financial risk for the company remains manageable and the women's income secured. For the women it is not only important to earn money on the spot, but also to get social contacts by connecting with other women and last but not least to strengthen their self-confidence.
For our knitters this means that colors which are not in stock at the moment have a very long delivery time. For this reason, we strongly recommend to profit before our supplies are sold out again.
