The new Manos we ordered is in - wow, was that fast. It's even prettier than I imagined. The picture doesn't really do the yarn justice, and just to give you a sense of scale, each of those hanks is actually 10 hanks, so there's a lot of yarn there.
I carried Manos a few years ago, and it was really nice - fantastic colors, great yardage, and a nice price - plus it's a fair trade product that supports a woman's co-op in Uruguay. So I always liked it. But then my rep for that yarn retired and you know, out of sight, out of mind. But then, Peter, my rep for all things Rowan and Kim Hargreaves said he was the rep for Manos now, and did I want to look at it. Oh my goodness, yes - tempt me, Peter, lead me into temptation, subject me to the forces of evil that ruin the most carefully of planned budgets. He must have seen it in my eyes because he pulled out the colors and I was gone.
