Manos del Uruguay Alegria yarn has a soft, springy texture thanks to a blend of 75% ultra fine merino and 25% polyamide. A celebration of color in a range of hand-painted shades, Alegria is machine washable and perfect for baby clothes, socks and fun accessories. Manos yarns are hand-dyed in large kettles following traditions passed down from one generation to the next. There are no dye lots, so no two skeins are exactly alike.
