Alegria, in Spanish, means ‘joy.’ And it is with boundless joy that we share this brilliant, fun, happy fingering-weight yarn from Manos del Uruguay! A blend of superwash merino and sturdy polyamide, Alegria is ultra-soft, resilient, and easy to care for—perfect for socks and baby garments. We’ve chosen eight vibrant variegated colorways and eight radiantly complementary semi-solid shades. Mix and match, play and experiment, to your heart’s content! How about a solid toe and heel paired with a dazzling variegated sock body? And then switch it up. With one skein solid and one skein variegated, you’ll have two pairs of jaunty, corresponding socks.
Manos del Uruguay sends their hand-dyed yarns to us in small batches—and each is an individual work of art! This means that occasionally dye lots may vary, and look a little different from our image. If you have any questions about one of these beautiful skeins, we're happy to help!
