I take a close look at Manos del Uruguay Alegria, a delightfully soft fingering weight yarn
Not only is the yarn luscious to knit with, it is Fair Trade Certified, produced in cooperatives throughout Uruguay, and helps the women who produce it support their families.
Thank you to Fairmount Fibers, North American distributor of Manos, for sending the skein of Alegria (in the dreamy new Stratus colourway) for me to review!
