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.

Beautiful

By Joy

Comments about Manos del Uruguay Alegria:

Jacaranda is the most beautiful colourway I've ever seen! The yarn is lovely - just the twist that I like, feels strong, so soft. I would most certainly recommend this yarn. I used it to make two scarves. I just made them recently, so I can't comment on how the yarn wears over time.

    Gorgeous Yarn

    By AJ

    Pros

    • Durable
    • Soft

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Socks

      Comments about Manos del Uruguay Alegria:

      This yarn is super soft and is durable. I've used it for socks but it would probably work up well in a sweater. If you don't like pooling, I'd recommend two skeins or alter needles sizes.

        Comments about Manos del Uruguay Alegria:

        This is beautiful yarn! It wound up with no knots, and knits up wonderfully. I used it for fingerless gloves and a matching hat, but this could be used for anything.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Package arrived in a timely manner and in great condition.

          Perfection for sock knitting. The elasticity would also lend itself to other small accessory items...shawls, gloves, cowls, etc...

            Comments about Manos del Uruguay Alegria:

            I was knitting a pair of socks from this yarn as my take along project for my recent trip to Ireland. As it was a knitting related tour, we had opportunity to talk with Irish knitters and show them what we were working on. They were greatly impressed by the beauty and colors of this yarn. Most of these ladies focused on Aran sweaters with local yarn, so this yarn was a novelty to them. Everyone asked where I had gotten it. Colors are beautiful.
