Manos del Uruguay is a non-profit social organization which, since 1968, has provided jobs for craftswomen living in Uruguay rural areas. They spin by hand and craft dye beautiful yarns with fantastical, vibrant colors. Each skein of yarn has a tag, with the signature of the woman who made it and the location where it was made. Since 2009 the organization is also part of the World Fair Trade Organization, WFTO.
