Introducing Alegria Grande

We carry Manos del Uruguay Alegria Semi-Solid and Space-Dyed in sock weight, but we've just added brand-new Alegria Grande to the mix!

Grande is a worsted-weight yarn, great for accessories, sweaters, blankets—just anything! Made with a blend of superwash merino and polyamide (a sweat-wicking, man-made fiber similar to nylon), it's machine washable (but please dry flat!).

alegria manos del uruguay yarn

I love all Manos del Uruguay yarn for many reasons, not the least of which is the COLOR! The folks at Manos are experts at putting together amazing colors for their space-dyed yarns, and using just the right amount of subtle variety in their space-dyed yarns. When the new shipment of Alegria arrived this week, we all swooned! Just gorgeous.

Kelley is working on a brioche hat (Beezee by Katrin Schubert) in Alegria Grande. Isn't it beautiful? We'll be offering this hat as a class at the shop in October.

Introduce yourself to our yarn of the month with the free Tayberry Hat and two colors of Alegria Grande, maybe Cactus Flower and Tahiti? This would be a super-cute Christmassy combo. Alegria Grande is 10% off throughout September!

I’d probably knit a scarf or a hat. Or both, depending on how much yarn the patterns would call for. It would also depend on the colors… I’m really indecisive, but I’d come up with something awesome.

OMG, i loooove allegria in fingering weight but all that softness and vivid color in a worsted?! THAT would be amazing… Worsted yarns have that irresistible squishyness that i love so much but miss when knitting with a lighter weight. I would gladly take a couple of those Acero skeins off your hands and ‘selfish knit’ myself some super squishy flip-top mittens with a matching messy bun hat ;)
