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.
