New Neon Manos Maxima!

Squeeee!  The yarn I’ve been waiting for finally arrived – Manos Del Uruguay Maxima Semi Solids in NEON colours! Now, if you you don’t want to wake you up before you go-go, I understand, but listen to me now and believe me later – a little bit of highlighter colour, while not for the faint of heart, rocks.  

Manos Del Uruguay Maxima  is 100% fair trade, kettle dyed, extra fine merino wool.  100g/ 200m. 18 to 20 sts = 4″ on 4mm to 5mm needles. $19.97/skein.

The good people at Purl Bee get it. The people on the Pinterest interweb get it too. The key to working the new new neon, is use is small doses, and pair it with a neutral (off white, grey, camel).
