From Manos Del Uruguay, the beautiful hand painted Alegria Sock Yarn is superwash and exceptionally soft. Accompanied by the pattern booklet, Alegria Sock Yarn, there are plenty of one skein ideas.
Each skein is individually dyed using a method known as hand painting, this produces a festival of colours in every skein. Whilst a single 100g goes a long way, please think about your purchase and be sure to buy enough for your project as colours may vary between skeins. It is also suggested that if your skeins differ significantly, to knit two rows from one skein and two rows from another to produce an overall blended or more even effect.
Manos Del Uruguay the hands of Uruguay is a non-profit organisation which assembles women in co-operatives scattered throughout the countryside of Uruguay. The aim of the organisation is to bring economic and social opportunities to rural women.
