Elegant and refined, Fino is everybody's favorite. It combines the softness of merino wool with the luster of silk in a lightweight yarn. Manos uses Tussah Silk for this blend, produced by silk worms that feed on oak and similar tree leaves, rich in tannins that give the fiber a gorgeous golden tone and yield subtle, tonal colors.
