Manos Alegria Grande

Manos Alegria Grande

Alegria, in Spanish, means ‘joy.’ And it’s with boundless joy that we share Alegría Grande—the big, worsted-weight sibling to Manos del Uruguay’s fingering-weight Alegría. A blend of superwash merino and sturdy polyamide, Alegría Grande is ultra-soft, resilient, easy to care for, and perfect for brilliant, fun accessories. We’ve chosen eight vibrantly variegated colorways—we’re thinking a dazzling pair of Basic Socks using our worsted-weight adaptation!

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!

75% superwash merino wool, 25% polyamide; 100g, 197 yds (180m); 18-20 sts= 4"/10 cm on a US 6-8 (4-5mm). Machine wash or hand wash in cool water; dry flat.
