I love consistency and I know what I like, so I always love it when this transfers to the yarn world. We all know and love Manos del Uruguay’s Alegria, and we are so happy to present its bigger sister, Alegria Grande to our yarn lineup to meet all of your project needs!
Like the fingering weight version, Alegria Grande has that same incredible bounce and softness you love, but in a worsted weight thickness. It’s a delightful blend of superwash merino and nylon, making it perfect for garments, baby items or anything you need easy care yarn for. This blend also takes dye brilliantly, and the tonal and variegated options allow you to really play around with color.
