Chimel designed by Quinn Reverendo is knit using just one hank of Manos Serpentina. Handspun from handpainted merino tops, Serpentina is a truly artisanal product. Each skein is unique, and the colors are totally random — they will not stack or pool. The ultra-soft superwash merino in a quick-knit gauge calls for next-to-the-skin wear like cowls and hats.
Manos Del Uruguay has named each colorway of Serpentina after an accomplished woman in history, whether she’s made headway in the arts, education, navigation, human rights, medicine, and on. We encourage you to learn more about these inspirational ladies as you knit with them! To make the pompom on the hat shown, we added remnants from our stash of another yarn for more texture and bulk.
