Have you had a chance to meet Cardo? One of our favorite yarns from Manos del Uruguay, it debuted in Space in 2021 and has fast become one of our favorite choices for cozy and quick cold weather knits. Made from 100% Corriedale wool, Cardo is a crisp, resilient bulky-weight yarn in a 4-ply construction hand-dyed by a woman’s collective in Uruguay. From small accessories to cozy sweaters, Cardo will give a pristine look to your all your fall makes.
Cardo is available in a gorgeous palette of 11 shades that play beautifully together. Find your project inspiration in the Fall 2023 Cardo Collection, featuring accessories that make great weekend projects or gifts!
