Alegria means "joy" in Spanish, and that's just what this hand-painted yarn is, a true colour celebration!
Easy-care with a rich, cushy hand, Alegria is perfect for socks, baby garments, or fun accessories.
Manos Del Uruguay ("the hands of Uruguay"), is a non profit organization which assembles women in cooperatives scattered throughout the countryside of Uruguay. The aim of the organization is to bring economic and social opportunites to rural women.
Note: We recommend buying enough yarn to complete a project. As with any hand dyed yarn, there can be significant shade differences between skeins, so we recommend that you alternate skeins every few rows, to blend and prevent striping.
