Manos del Uruguay Alegria

Alegria from Manos del Uruguay is a soft, springy sock yarn hand painted in a celebration of bright color. Made of a blend of superwash merino for easy care and polyamide for durability, Alegria will surely bring you joy with its incredible softness and unique colors, from neon to neutrals. With a generous 445 yards/hank, Alegria is perfect for a variety of sock and fingering-weight projects. 

No two skeins are exactly alike and there are no dye lots. Colors may vary greatly.

We recommend buying enough yarn to complete a project. If there is great difference between skeins, we recommend working two rows from one skein and two rows from another skein to give an overall blended effect. Made in Uruguay.

              Of all the socks I knit this year - the Manos Del Uruguay Alegria pairs are by far my favourites! And they are washing & wearing well (no balling or felting).

              This is a truly lovely yarn. The colors are delicious and the texture is so soft yet holding its shape nicely. I will purchase this again.

                      I've made two Wingspan shawls so far with different colours of this yarn. It's lovely to work with, with only very occasional thin spots. I'm planning to try it for a lightweight sweater next. If I ever master sock knitting, this will be on my list of yarns to try for socks, too.
