When Manos De Uruguay set out to develop this new yarn, they wanted a simple yarn that would be the perfect canvas to highlight our colors. Alma is a fingering single ply, made of the softest merino superwash, with the perfect balance between lightness, body and drape.
Extremely versatile, Alma is great for knitting shawls and accessories as well as sweaters. It is perfect for lace knitting: not excessively thin, or too time-consuming.
Pairs of colors are the concept behind the color palette, a semi-solid and a multi-colored one, making it easy to achieve exciting combinations for color patterns.
Alma is pure, tender, soft; it brings to mind all things good. So when Manos had to think of color names, they chose the attitudes that motivates people the most.
