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.
