Manos Del Uruguay | Alegria

NZ$45.00 inc GST



Alegria is Manos del Uruguay’s sock yarn – but don’t let that stop you using it for gorgeous shawls or sweaters! It’s silky and light, and over and over again people say it’s a pleasure to work with. More than one fibre artist calls it “love at first touch.” Manos del Uruguay makes it from 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Polyamide, and hand-paints the dye on the fibres. Because they hand–dye it in small batches we strongly recommend you buy all your skeins for a project at once!
