Alegría means "joy" in Spanish, and that's just what this hand-painted yarn is, a true color celebration! The soft superwash merino wool is blended with nylon to create a durable, squashy yarn that is perfect for socks, shawls, sweaters, and more!
Hand-dyed in Uruguay by co-operatives that benefit both farmers and artisans, Manos is committed to fair trade and ethical practices, as well as beautiful yarn.
