Marla is made from 2 strands of lighter-weight yarn that have been dyed separately and then plied together. When worked, Marla creates a marled fabric, where the colors are uniquely distributed.

The resulting marled yarn can be high-contrast and tweedy, or subtly Tonal, or a bit of both.

The Marla palette is connected directly to the Sami palette - they coordinate with each other to make gorgeous color pairings!

Marla is hand dyed by women artisans in Manos cooperatives in Uruguay's countryside.

About Manos del Uruguay:  Manos del Uruguay was founded to give Uruguay's rural women jobs, income, and the opportunity to personally develop and gain independence while keeping their roots and traditions.  The company encourages women to stay close to their community and families with 12 cooperatives in a small village in the Uruguayan countryside.  The artisans are the owners of this cooperative, too.

All of the yarns are hand-dyed by artisans using big pots heated by wood kettles, dyed in small batches to create wonderful colors. The yarn colors are bright and wild, full of nuances and variations. No two skeins are the same, and each one is unique. Wool Clasica is hand spun by Manos artisans who keep the traditional hand spinning skills alive and create unique, beautiful yarns.  

Manos del Uruguay has been a member of the WFTO, World Fair Trade Organization, since 2009.  
Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based transparency and respect that seeks greater equity in international trade. 
As a Fair Trade organization, Manos Del Uruguay supports producers and raises awareness for changes in the rules and practice of international trade.
