We are excited to announce the arrival of Manos del Uruguay Alegria! For those not familiar with Manos, the brand features hand spun & dyed artisan yarns that support rural Uruguayan women.
Manos is a non-profit organization that was founded to give women jobs, allowing them to be independent & support their families while being able to live in their home villages.
The yarn is spun with high quality fibers & dyed into gorgeous colorways that reflect the rich landscape & culture of Uruguay. Manos is focused on yarns that are sustainable, ethical & beautiful. The company is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization; recognized for their socially sustainable work.
Our feature pattern is Bubblie by Émilie Vézina-Poirier. These are the ultimate luxe house socks, as they are knit with a sock yarn held together with your favorite mohair. They are like giving your feet a cozy hug.
The Bubblie Socks require 1 skein of Manos del Uruguay Alegria, 445 yards of a lace weight mohair (or similar) yarn & size US 1.5 double point needles (or favorite method for small circumference knitting).
Some of our favorite mohair yarns that would be great for the socks include Shibui Silk Cloud, Lang Lace, Rowan Kidsilk Haze, Fyberspates Cumulus (mohair free for those with sensitivities) or bring on the color play with Farmers Daughter Mighty Mo.
Find your favorite tonal or bold color combination in our online store & enjoy free shipping & complimentary ball winding.
