Knitter's Review makes it sound like handpaintedyarn.com and Manos come from the same place, a women's collective in Uruguay, but the handpaintedyarn is WAY cheaper. I don't know if this is true or not, but it sure is a nice yarn!

Thanks mamas. I just picked up 7 skeins of Manos on ebay for $66.88, including shipping. I think that was a good deal? Please show me if I could have done better somewhere else, for next time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
That handpainted yarn is still even cheaper than that, though, at $6.20 per skein. BeTheEarth, it sounds like you've used this yarn and like it? Have you used both to compare?
