A spectacular artisanal top-dyed, hand spun, Aran weight yarn!
To create its delicate twirled colour, the craftswomen of Manos first dye the gorgeous soft merino tops before spinning by hand on a spinning wheel.
It's such an exciting yarn to work with - as well as the pretty, twirly colour changes, the handspun nature of the yarn gives you thick and thin areas so you end up with loads of texture from slubby and puffy to thin and shiny - you'll never be bored with Serpentina!
Each skein is a work of art, and as with all Manos yarns, every skein of yarn carries the signature of the craftswoman who made it, together with the name of the locality and the non-profit cooperative where it was made.
Serpentina is aptly named for the paper streamers thrown at Carnival parties in South America!
