Alegria Grande by Manos Del Uruguay

If you love Alegria, you’ll love Alegria Grande. This is a worsted weight version of their delicious superwash and polyamide yarn base. Available in both semi-solid and space-dyed colors.

Needle Size: US 6 - 8 / 4 - 5mm

Some Talking Points:

Manos yarns are produced by skilled artisans in cooperatives located throughout Uruguay.

Each skein of yarn purchased helps a woman in Uruguay to support her family.

Bonus points for GREAT photography!

Each skein is signed by the artisan so that you know who made your yarn and which village it came from.

Manos yarn and fiber is certified Fair Trade.
