MANOS Maxima is really soft and squishy to touch.

It is hand dyed in stainless steel kettles with steam heat to create a marbleized, striated effect. This Merino wool takes to the hand dying process beautifully – the result is bright colours are fun to work with. Your handmade items will certainly stand out from the crowd!

The worsted weight one-ply construction makes Maxima a great all purpose yarn – 199 meters (218 yards) is great for 1 ball accessory projects.

*Please note that every effort has been made to represent the colour of this yarn accurately, but that there may be reasonable differences between your screen view & the actual yarn colour.

MANOS’ commitment to the environment is reflected in the use of luxurious natural fibers such as pure wool, silk, alpaca, cashmere and cotton. The rational use of water and other resources as well as the avoidance of harmful chemicals during the dyeing process is enforced. read more…
