Overall Shepherd Sock Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (4.8 based on 524 reviews)

Lovely yarn! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This is pretty yarn. So far I've used it only for socks. One skein will knit a pair of large socks, size 11, with a longer tube. It has a soft feel and the colors are vibrant. I did notice that the Pin Stripe shade was different from the same colorway in the LL Sole Mate yarn so, if you order the same color in each type of yarn,that may be true with all of them. I really don't know! I will buy more of the Shepherd Sock.

I love the color of this version of Lorna's laces. I'm glad I was able to grab some before it was all gone. Don't wait if you like a color. Get it quickly.
