New Yarn- Manos Serpentina

Manos del Uruguay is well known for their vibrant colours and truly unbelievably soft fibre blends. It is impossible to imagine knitting or crocheting anything in a Manos yarn, that is not absolutely gorgeous.

And while Manos has never been afraid of colour or texture, they are pulling out all the stops with their latest yarn, Serpentina.

Serpentina is hand spun in Uruguay, using 100% Superwash Merino wool. With a thick and thin texture, and subtle blips of colour popped throughout, this yarn will be an absolute pleasure to both knit, and wear.

Everyone here at the Estelle office has already been plotting what we will each knit with the Serpentina once we get a skein or two of it into our hands. One of us wants mittens with a contrasting cuff (maybe using some Cascade 220?), one of us wants to knit a squishy cowl, and one of us is dreaming of incorporating a few rows of it it into an afghan for the living room.

Unsure of what to do with a single skein of handspun? We cruised some images on Pinterest, and came up with some incredibly inspiring ideas! So don’t be scared to purchase that skein- even if you are unsure what to do with it. There are plenty of projects that can a single skein of handspun can be easily incorporated into. And besides, no one said that you could only purchase just one!

Manos Serpentina will be available in local yarn shops across Canada as of mid-August 2017, and like all good things, we promise that it will be well worth the wait.
