Manos Del Uruguay's Maxima yarn is crafted of 100% extrafine merino wool, hand-dyed and wound by women working at The Manos Cooperatives, part of the World Fair Trade Organization. The soft, worsted weight of this yarn looks great worked up into this sleek and stylish beanie with a universal, laid back appeal. It makes a great gift for guys or girls alike and can easily be adapted to a smaller size for kids too! Enjoy giving a unique, feel-good gift for the holidays, as every hank of Manos yarn you purchase helps a woman in Uruguay support her family!
