Wonderful Sock Yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I love this yarn for socks--I've made three pairs using it. I've made socks from other yarns as well--I'm a beginning sock knitter, but I've made about 8 pairs now. This yarn is easy to work with (except that it twists a lot as you're knitting), I get the gauge I need--I use dps #1, and, for some reason, I have less problem with ladders when purling, perhaps because of the firmness of the yarn twist. The best part is wearing the socks. These are the most comfortable socks to wear--I wear clogs and loafers. I wash the socks in the washing machine, using a mesh bag, on the gentle cycle. I've had no pilling problems or shrinking. There are many wonderful sock yarns, and I want to try as many different kinds as possible, but this is my favorite so far.
