News I Love to Share!

News I love to share: Recently, after a long and exhaustive evaluation process, Manos del Uruguay has been admitted as a full member of WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization), the global representative body of over 350 organizations committed to 100% Fair Trade. This recognizes the mission of Manos del Uruguay to eradicate poverty through sustainable economic development, pioneering social and environmental policy and practice, and continual reinvestment in marginalized artisans, farmers and producer communities. To learn please visit the web site of Manos distributor Fairmount Fibers

Manos is and has always been a favorite of mine. It works up beautiful garments, warm and cozy hats, and felts like no other yarn out there, in my opinion. Look for more Manos colors coming soon after I move into the new space at 301 Jerry St in Castle Rock, CO
