Hand-dyed. Soft and colourful! Alegria from Manos del Uruguay is one of our favourite yarns! One hank is enough to knit a pair of socks; three hanks will make a beautiful Ann Budd skirt. Try it for yourself!

We also love Alegria for shawl knitting because of its softness. A free pattern from the Fairmount Fibers Design Team is the Alegria Shadow Shawl. This triangle shawl with purl ridge stripes throughout only requires one skein.
