This is a lovely, soft sock yarn, which I am enjoying very much. I love the color combinations.

Manos Alegria Sock Yarn
Our favorite kettle dyed yarn is now available in a sock yarn! Manos Alegria comes in lots of lively and vibrant colorways perfect for socks, baby garments, shawls and more. It's made of a superwash merino and nylon blend making Alegria soft and machine washable. The nylon provides some resilience so if you're knitting socks they have memory, bounce, and hold their shape.

received this yarn, color was more beautiful than on line. its so soft.
I can't say enough good things about Manos Alegria sock yarn!! I've made sweaters, shawls, cowls and am now making a Summer dress with this yarn. I love the color ways, the texture, the feel...everything. I know I can't make everything out of Alegria but I will definitely give it a try. Thanks for carrying this great yarn...can't wait to purchase more!!
The yarn itself is wonderful - soft and beautifully dyed. However, the three supposedly 100 gram skeins I received weighed 94, 92, and 91 grams. For all three to be this short seems to suggest a pattern. I consider this unacceptable.
What I love about this yarn is that it doesnt fuzz up even tho I am handling the yarn quite roughly while knitting socks two at a time on circulars. It retains a smooth texture and the colors are fabulous...waiting for the sale and will stock up! Brenda
Wish I could have bought more!
Love, love, LOVE this yarn! It's gorgeous in color, fabulous in weight, quality and squishiness, and OMG, it's just great. Did I mention I love this yarn? Do yourself a favor and order like 5 because once you get the first one in the mail you're going to wish you already had 4 more. =)
