Manos del Uruguay Alegrìa Grande – Merino Wool Yarn

Manos del Uruguay Alegrìa Grande is a splendid natural yarn in pure merino wool for knitting garments and accessories for Autumn – Winter fashion.
It is the bigger brother of the very popular Alegrìa,, a classic yarn for thick fingering socks.

The merino wool used is of superior quality: soft and smooth to the touch, it is very warm and airy at the same time. The percentage in nylon increases its silky consistency and strength, and makes it a yarn with which to make fine sweaters, knit hats, crochet ponchos and all those garments and accessories that require a slight elasticity.
Its Aran thickness and compact structure make it a very beginner-friendly yarn.
It is also excellent for making quick and easy knits with 4mm and 5mm needles and crochet hooks, ideal as handmade Christmas gifts for example.

In addition, the superwash treatment will allow you to wash your clothes in the washing machine. This characteristic, combined with the hypoallergenic properties and the transpiring qualities of this beautiful yarn, make Alegrìa Grande a perfect wool for babies and in general for knitting for children.

Manos del Uruguay Alegrìa Grande is a hand dyed yarn by local artisans who hand down the ancient traditions of their communities from generation to generation. Each color is produced in small batches through an ancient technique that involves the use of large wood-fired kettles.
The result is a brilliant and multi-tonal patterned wool, which features rare and unrepeatable nuances. No two skeins are the same and this will make all your work truly unique and original. Precisely for this reason, for knitting patterns that require more than one skein, we recommend using two skeins at the same time to alternate every two rows of knitting or crocheting.

Alegrìa Grande is, like all Manos del Uruguay eco-sustainable natural yarns, a wool certified by World Fair Trade Organization. The WFTO is a supranational organization that promotes fair trade. Through very high quality standards, it ensures that its members put the environment and people first in all stages of production.

Each skein bears the signature of the artisan who produced it and the name of the community of origin on the label. In your hands you will therefore have not only a fine yarn of the highest quality, but also a story made of tradition, passion and commitment for a better planet. You will continue to tell this story through shawls, knit cardigans, baby blankets and all your most refined and original creative works.

You have to unwind and rewind skeins into balls before start knitting or crochet. We therefore recommend the use of KnitPro Swift / Skein Winder, the KnitPro Wooden Natural Ball Winder or the  KnitPro Plastic Ball Winder .

We can wind up skeins into balls for you, if you like it. It costs 1 € for each skein and you can ask for it when you place your order.
