Manos del Uruguay Alegria Grande Bocados

Manos del Uruguay is a special brand of hand spun & dyed artisan yarns that supports 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. 

Bocados are little “morsels” of Alegria Grande.  These minis are the perfect size for projects that need small amounts of different colors such as mulit-colored hats, mittens or colorwork yoke sweaters.  They are also fun for heavier weight socks!  Alegria Grande is a gorgeously versatile blend of superwash Merino wool & nylon.  This soft yarn feels great next to skin & is available in vibrant, hand-dyed colorways.
