Alegria Grande

Type: Yarn


Worsted weight, superwash wool/nylon blend in stunning colors dyed by local artisans in Uruguay.

Alegria Yarn from Manos del Uruguay comes in brilliant colors and they are a fair trade company. 

Alegria Yarn is a great choice for those quick gift knits or even a more substantial project like a sweater.  

We became enamored with all of the yarns from Manos del Uruguay and their mission. This is a fair trade company which means they support the sustainable development of small producers. They have 12 co-ops in Uruguay and each skein lists who dyed it and where. 

This yarn is kettle-dyed in small batches and you can see and feel the love put into them.  

  • 75% merino superwash, 25% nylon
