Purl Soho teamed up with the legendary Manos Del Uruguay, to create Lovebird, a yarn full of spunk and adventure, beauty and joy! Lovebird is a handspun 100% superwash merino dipped into kettles of inspiring color. It has two different colored plies, which create a barber-pole stripe that makes every stitch an anticipated little surprise. Shifting gently between a bit thicker and slightly thinner, Lovebird knits up at a chunky or super bulky weight and is an exciting choice for wonderfully soft blankets, beautiful sweaters, and super cozy winter accessories. Our Lovebird partner, Manos Del Uruguay, is a non-profit member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means they are committed to fair and safe working conditions, as well as a respect for the environment. They are dedicated to improving the lives of women in rural Uruguay and caring for the crafts and traditions of their land. Manos Del Uruguay also works to protect the environment with production protocols that emphasize thoughtful and effective management of water, waste, energy consumption and emissions. Their network of cooperatives are owned by local artisans who harness the rainbow in each and every skein!
PLEASE NOTE: Because this yarn is hand dyed in small batches, dye lots will vary and may differ somewhat from photos here. Occasionally, there may be dye lots that vary more dramatically. In that case, we'll show both versions here... Pick your favorite! In addition, yardages and gauge may vary a bit between skeins. We hope you embrace this variation as part of the character and charm of the yarn, and when in doubt, we recommend ordering an extra skein. You can return unwound yarn for a refund within 30 days of purchase, or within 6 months, for store credit. Our Return Policy has all the details!
