Manos del Uruguay - Cabrito
Hand-dyed Mohair
Cabrito is a wonderfully soft, mohair blend yarn from our fair-trade partners Manos del Uruguay.

Cabrito comes in semi-solid as well as space-dyed colors and because it's so light, you get great yardage on a skein. Each 25 gram skein yields approximately 230 yards! Use it by itself or carried along with another yarn for a different look.
The beautiful, reversible hat shown here is knit with one skein of Manos Silk Blend and one skein of Cabrito. You can choose your own colors, or choose one of the combinations we've put together for you!
The Drifting Scarf is another popular pattern that also uses Cabrito with 2 colors of Silk Blend. The piece uses 2 skeins of one color of Cabrito and 2 skeins each of two colors of Silk Blend for a total of 6 skeins.

Again, choose your own combinations or indulge in the kits we've assembled for you!
