    Manos del Uruguay's Cardo is a beautiful hand dyed, chunky 4-ply yarn made of 100% non-superwash Uruguayan Corriedale wool. It has a long and strong staple that has a lot of shine and crimp, which gives it excellent stitch definition and a knitted fabric that will retain its shape very well. Classic in its construction and hand, Cardo feels familiar and true, like that beloved place where you like to return for comforting. Cardo is the perfect sweater yarn, it knits fast and will show off cables and fancy stitches.  It's also fabulous for home goods like pillows and blankets.

    Note about Hand Dyed Yarns – While we love the exquisite colors available in hand dyed yarns, there can be significant variations from skein to skein. Please follow these guidelines to ensure success:

    • Purchase enough yarn to complete your project, allowing for a bit of overage, just in case!
    • Not all differences in skeins are obvious when comparing skeins.
    • For projects that require 2 or more skeins, we highly recommend blending your skeins by using 2 balls at once, alternating every couple of rows from each ball. This should blend any variations between skeins.
