Alegria per 100 gr skein.

Hand dyed yarn
Alegria is available in semi solid and multidye colours. Please note that all colours, including the semi solids, are hand dyed. This makes the colours very lively, but may also result in a difference in colour on larger projects. This goes for both the multidye and the semi solid skeins. Each skein is unique.
The skilled knitter can work around this by alternating between skeins every few rows. When crocheting, slight colour differences are usually less visible, but alternating should still be considered.
