Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend

Silk Blend from Manos del Uruguay is a perennial favorite. The colors are glorious, and the silk adds a lustrous sheen to the fabric that also has great stitch definition and a soft hand.  Since they are dyed in large kettles, no two skeins are exactly alike.  Be sure to order a sufficient quantity for your project and alternate skeins for a overall blended effect.  

Take a look at Mitzi's version of Amaranto by Jocelyn Tunney. The color possibilities for your version are almost endless.  Amaranto requires 9 skeins of Silk Blend and size #7 needles. The pattern is available on ravelry.
