Literally translated, Alegria Grande means great joy or happiness – and that's exactly how you'll feel should you choose to work up your next project in this bouncy, easy-to-use worsted weight yarn from our friends at Manos del Uruguay.

Founded way back in 1968, Manos has maintained its commitment to pro-social, woman-first ethics and principles for over fifty years. Operating as a non-profit and part of the World Fair Trade Organization, each skein and piece created by the worker-owned collective provides opportunities for Uruguayan women to support their families and communities.
