Alegria Sock

Alegria sock is a 75%/25% superwash wool/nylon blend. Handpainted and a nicely twisted 3 ply yarn, this is a great sock yarn but could also be lovely for shawls or scarves, gloves or wristlets!

The first time I ordered color Locura, I planned on shipping it back because it was so shocking to me in full scale compared to the little swatch I had seen. But then I decided to keep it becuase the group needed a splash of color at that time. And now I have reordered that color (and Carnaval now, as well) more than any of the others!

And now that the "splatter" yarns are so big, I've brought some of the splash colorways that Manos offers in this yarn- Ghostbusters, Happy, and Caracas!

445 yards/skein 28 - 30 sts US 1-3 needle

Price: $24.50/sk

For another kettle/hand dyed yarn often used for socks and also super soft, but featuring a different color range, check out Paca Peds.
