Sami is spun of the same fiber and to the same weight as Marla, though it is dyed after plying. The yarn has a delightfully springy structure and tonal hand-dyed colors. These semi-solid colors are dyed specifically to coordinate with the Marla palette!
The Sami palette is connected directly to the Marla palette - they coordinate with each other to make gorgeous color pairings!
Sami 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.
