YouTube Video: CHOOSING YARN - Fino Miniskeins
In this series, Tal, Mrs Morris' daughter, will show you the yarns from Manos Del Uruguay. Manos Del Uruguay is a fantastic fairtrade company supporting women in rural Uruguay, for more details see our post of them here.
Fino Miniskein sets by Manos del Uruguay showcase the subtle, elegant colours of the Fino yarn. They contain five 20g mini skeins in coordinating colours perfect for shawls, scarves and wraps. You can pair them with a full skein of Fino, use them on their own, or even use multiple boxes at once.
The Piroette Cowl is a free pattern on our site that uses just 1 box of the miniskeins. This cowl is a great introduction to the helical knitting technique which creates single row stripes and is a technique that can be taken forward and used when alternating hand-dyed skeins when creating jumpers.
