Manos Del Uruguay Alegria


Alegria (“joy” in Spanish) is an easy-care yarn in exciting colours. Hand-painted to create a celebration of different colours in every skein. This yarn is easy-care with a rich, cushy hand, Alegria is perfect for socks, baby gear, or fun accessories.No two skeins are exactly alike and there are no dye lots. We recommend buying enough yarn to complete a project. If there is great difference between skeins, we recommend knitting two rows from one skein and two from another skein to give an overall blended effect.

Colours in the 400 & 2000 series are from the Alegria Watercolours Collection.
