Manos Del Uruguay | Milo

NZ$49.00 inc GST



Manos del Uruguay Milo yarn is 65% Merino Wool/ 35% Linen and has a gentle sheen and a heathered tone. Fibre artists describe it as “beautiful, lustrous and soft” and say it is “a joy to work with.” It has a good weight and drapes beautifully. Because Manos del Uruguay hand–dyes it in small batches we strongly recommend you buy all your skeins for a project at once!

Manos del Uruguay Milo Pattern Ideas

  • It’s a pullover sweater…with pockets! The Granito knitting pattern by Joji Locatelli (of Joji Knits fame) is the relaxed, loungey sweater we all need nowadays.
  • The Sunset Primrose cardigan knitting pattern has an eye-catching folksy floral motif at the yoke.
  • The free Montevido Pullover Top crochet pattern is available in a wide range of sizes. You can wear it like a poncho or like a fitted dress – pick your look!
  • The Milo scarf knitting pattern is a very rugged scarf designed for men but wearable by anyone.
  • The Goodfellow top knitting pattern is loaded with lacework. It’s designed to be worn over a camisole in summer – but nothing says you can’t wear it over a wool underlayer in winter!
  • The challenging Time Honored Sweater crochet pattern combines lacework and mesh to show off your stitchwork and the gorgeous properties of Milo yarn.
  • The free Vanora sweater knitting pattern has lacework throughout and can be worn alone or over a top to make it a year-round garment.
  • Tango on a Dutch Beach is a beautiful capelet knitting pattern that can be worn with a very dressy or casual outfit.
