Manos del Uruguay Fino is elegant and refined. Fino combines the softness of merino wool with the lustre of silk in a lightweight yarn that’s perfect for heirloom accessories or luxurious garments. Fino features a new dye process that yields complex, subtle, tonal colors.
The Pluma Shawlette by Lisa R. Myers is a squishy garter stitch shawl with a lace edging. It only requires one skein of Fino. This triangle shawl makes the most of Fino's high silk content because the softness gets to be worn next-to-skin.
