The Yésica Collection is a full Fall / Winter handmade wardrobe, exploring the different weights and fibers of Manos del Uruguay yarns! Intended to be mixed and matched, they can be worn together to create different looks and play with the stunning color palette from Manos.

\\\\///////

The Yésica Lightweight Pullover is knitted in stockinette stitch with delicate slip-stitch details at the border ribbings to show off the beautiful texture of Milo, a linen-merino yarn. It’s a top-down circular yoke pullover, where the increases create vertical lines that mimic large pleats. The unfitted sleeves gather at the wrist for a subtle balloon shape.
