Milo is a blend of soft Merino wool and linen and is a single ply hand-spun yarn with texture and shine. But the most interesting thing about Milo is the story behind the company. Manos Del Uruguay is a non-profit organization owned and operated by women. For more than 40 years Manos has been providing economic independence to women in Uruguay's rural areas and countryside. Hand-dyed and hand-spun by artisans from 17 small villages throughout Uruguay, and each skein is labeled with village and artisan name. A beautiful yarn with an equally beautiful story behind it.
Milo comes in a reeled hank, which must be wound into a ball before use. We are happy to wind the yarn for you at no charge, but this does make the yarn non-returnable. If you would like your skeins wound, please request it in the "Shipping Instructions" box during the checkout process.
