700 Tex is hand-spun single ply yarn from the fleece of Corriedale sheep of Uruguay. Because it is hand spun, the yarn is not perfectly smooth. This gives a textural and slightly rustic result. As always with the Manos del Uruguay yarn, the yarn is kettle dyed and the colors selected with magical insight that yields a wonderful result. This yarn is the precursor to the Wool Clasica sold today.
