Manos del Uruguay Serpentina

Handspun from hand-painted merino tops, Manos del Uruguay's Serpentina is a truly artisanal product. Each skein is unique, and the colors are totally random -- they will not stack or pool. With colorways named after accomplished women in history, the ultra-soft superwash merino in a quick-knit gauge calls for next-to-the-skin wear like cowls and hats.  

We've found two super-fun knits that each require just one skein of Serpentina. Kahlo Mittens by Quinn Reverendo use size 7 needles, and the Flecha Cowl by Jocelyn Tunney use size 13 needles. Both patterns are free on Ravelry.
