Manos del Uruguay Alegria
Manos del Uruguay Algeria is a happy, easygoing sock yarn made of ultra-soft superwash merino with a durable polyamide. Available in bright and playful colors, Alegria would make a great choice for socks, a shawl, or a fun knit for baby.
Alegria is made of 75% superwash merino and 25% polyamide and available in 445 yard skeins. As each skein is hand-dyed and unique, it's recommended that you alternate between two skeins, especially when you're knitting larger projects and are concerned about the color transitions from skein to skein. For care, be sure to gently machine or hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry.
Manos del Uruguay is a nonprofit comprised of over 400 artisans throughout the countryside of Uruguay whose aim is to bring economic and social opportunities to rural women. Each skein's tag is signed by the woman who made your yarn and notes from which village your yarn came.
