Manos del Uruguay Cardo

Cardo is a plump, round bulky weight yarn spun from 100% Corriedale wool.  Corriedale sheep have a dense fleece that produces a warm & durable, yet soft yarn.  The round, tight twist of Cardo is ideal for warm garments & accessories. Textured stitch patterns & cables look divine in this yarn & really stand out.
