Manos Serena is also a newbie, but just a lovely as it’s colleagues. Summer yarns aren’t usually petting yarns, but Serena’s alpaca/cotton blend is as soft and pretty as a kitten. It comes in both kettle dyed semi-solids and hand dyed multi-colours. Additionally, Manos is a World Fair Trade Organization, which means that it is a non-profit organization that assembles artisans to bring them economic and social opportunities. The name of the artisan and her location are even written on the tags of the hand painted yarns! The yarn is versatile, I’m queing it up to make a little spring cardie, but it also has the drape for lace/shawl knititng. It’s a sport/Dk weight, so you can use it for just about any pattern that calls for either of those weight of yarns.
