Alegria Grande Yarn – Soft and Snuggly

One hank of the three I received of the Alegria Grande
See how it cakes up.

Note: Fairmount Fibers, North American Distributor of Manos del Uruguay yarns sent me this Alegria Grande yarn to give my honest feedback.

I’m a huge fan of Manos Del Uruguay (watch the video below to find out why) and when I was given the opportunity to review one of the new colors of the Alegria Grande, I had to jump at it.

And I was not disappointed! I’d never used the Alegria before and it was such a pleasure to work with. It was soft and squishy, worked up easily and frogged with no problem. The video below goes into more about the yarn and shows off a project done in the yarn.

Here are some yarn facts for you about Alegria Grande:
