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.

        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.

                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.

                              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.
