Manos del Uruguay Alegria Sock Yarn Review
Hello NobleKnitters! It's Donna and I'm the Knitting Doctor here at NobleKnits and today I'm just like a kid in a candy store! In fact, I'm carrying more candy than I can handle! It's actually Manos del Uruguay Alegria yarn. Alegria has some of the most fabulous color ways and color combinations that I have ever seen. When I say "I'm like a kid in a candy store" it's because I literally can't choose which color I like best.
This is a fingering weight yarn. It's 75% Merino and 25% Polyamide so you are going to get a whole lot of bounce. It's also a superwash so you can throw it in the washer. You get 455 yards per skein with this little beauty. Again, it is truly one of the most gloriously shaded yarns I have ever seen.
In Space-Dyed shades - it's everything from pastels to bendable muted colors. This one is grape with a silver, I don't know if you can see it, but some really nice color combinations here. They look really pretty in the skein, but you may be asking, what do I do with it? I think that's a dilemma that we all have. I see a yarn that's gorgeous, but gosh, what's it going to knit up like?
Fortunately for us, our Yarn Girl Lee (who's a new knitter, by the way), is working on a tank pattern. It's made out of Alegria, I think the color is called Coastal Azure. This is how the yarn works up - look at the subtle variations with it. The pattern is a Grace Akhrem Pattern and it's called Aviva. It's really suitable and it's working out well for a first time knitter. So we have a couple simple pleats here, some simple eyelets, and look at the detail on the side of this tank. It's going to be one really handsome garment.
Again this is Manos del Uruguay Alegria yarn. One of my very favorite yarns to look at, touch, and knit. It's Donna the Knitting Doctor wishing you happy knitting.
