Meet the completely irresistible Cabrito from Manos del Uruguay.
Cabrito is a luxurious mohair yarn that is both airy, fluffy and silky soft. It unfolds in beautiful variegated colors, it is a wonderful blend of ultra soft kid mohair and durable polyamide. You can knit it on its own and allow its simplicity to create an airy and almost transparent sweater, but you can also choose to use Cabrito as a companion thread to another yarn, if the result you desire is a dream-like mohair feel. Cabrito is also ideal for scarves and shawls.
Cabrito is hand-dyed in pots in small batches, and the colors in the final product are governed by weather conditions, the season and the water in the area it is produced, which means that the shades will vary and no two hanks will be 100% the same. As a result, your finished project will gain a unique expression! We recommend that you buy enough yarn for your entire finished project from the start. We also recommend that you alternate skeins, knitting two rows from one, and two rows from another, to achieve a uniform look.
Manos del Uruguay is an NGO that provides work and support to women in Uruguay. The women's expertise about yarn production has been passed on through generations, so not only do they give women the opportunity to shine within an area they know very much about, they also help them financially and socially. They are a member of the world fair trade organization WFTO which supports the small manufacturers and ensures the work of the craftsmen.
Every single hank is personally signed by the woman who made it - that way you know exactly who will benefit from your yarn purchase. Have fun with this gorgeous yarn!
I used my points to get one skein of this just to check it out. I am very pleased. It's very soft and I love the color changes. I plan to pair this with a white worsted yarn to make a sweater.
I got the Chamaleon (R9041), it is gorgeous. The colors remind me of a calm pond under a summer sky. It was marvelous to work with, no tangles and easier to frog than I thought it would be.
I loved working with this yarn. The subtle color variation is really beautiful, and the soft halo effect is perfect for the cozy sweater that I’m working on. Definitely will buy again!
The yarn is soft and beautiful. I got #9275. The colors in real life are noticeably more subdued than on the website, but still lovely. Looking for the right project for it!
I have knitted the prettiest vest with this yarn and I am just so in love, totally worth spending my points on it! 😍😍😍
