This is a WONDERFUL yarn! I use it to make prayer shawls...be aware it is slightly 'slubby', but that makes it even better, no matter what you choose to use it to make. If for socks, it's going to make a wonderful pair of comfy socks...and the colors...well, when it says on the description that anything made will be a 'work of art' it's TRUE! I have bought 6 skeins so far...it takes 2 to make the shawl, so I bought 2 of 3 different colors...every one is gorgeous! It's easy to work and great for either knit or crochet. I am knitting the shawls, haven't crocheted with it yet, but would have no qualms doing so. GREAT YARN! And a GREAT PRICE! Thank you, JBW!
