Manos del Uruguay Alegria


All of the fabulous colors of Manos del Uruguay are on display in Alegria, a fingering weight merino blend with a superb twist that is a delight to knit.  Whether you're looking for socks, baby garments, shawls or sweaters, Alegria is a perfect choice.

And when you make the Lilli Pilli wrap, you get to pick three! Ambah O'Brien's pattern has stripes and lace - all on the bias (swoon). The hardest part is picking your two stripe colors and a third for that pop of geometric lace. Have fun choosing; each skein is hand dyed and no two are the same!  You'll need size 5 circular needles. The pattern is available on

We've found the perfect "one skein" project for all of your favorite colors of Manos Alegria! Make a Baubles and Bows Poncho or cowl - a perfect warm weather lacy wrap. Alternating sections of daisies, eyelets, baubles, and bows dance across this knit, and with three different size options you can make the one that's just right for you. Have fun picking your favorite warm weather color! The pattern uses size 8 needles and is available on

Are you a sock knitter? Manos Alegria is a perfect choice for strength and durability with its superwash/polyamide blend.
