Spun from superwash Merino wool with a little nylon added for strength, Alegria is without a doubt a wonder soft springy yarn that is a joy to knit or crochet with. In fact Alegria means just that in Spanish, joy.
Each skein is unique! Hand-painted in a range of exciting vibrant colours by women's cooperatives that are scattered throughout the countryside of Uruguay. Each skeins is signed by the woman who dyed it.
There is plenty of drape to this wonderful variegated 4ply yarn, which tends itself well to shawls and cowls. The variegated colours make Alegria perfect to use in Brioche knitting. And the superwash Merino and nylon make this your go to sock yarn for knitting socks.
If you are buying Manos Alegria for a larger project it is best to alternate knitting from two skeins throughout your project to ensure an overall even blend of colour.
