Alegria Grande


Alegria Grande is a hand-dyed worsted weight yarn for bright, beautiful, durable knits of all kinds: baby blankets, kids' sweaters, thick socks, colorful scarves... everything!

Manos del Uruguay is a women artisan-owned cooperative that has been creating yarn since 1968, founded to provide an opportunity for rural women in Uruguay to gain financial independence while maintaining community and family traditions. Every skein is an opportunity to help a Uruguayan woman support her family.
