I really love Kroy Sock yarn. It knits up easily, and the finished socks are really durable and get more and more comfy with every wash.
This is the 3rd pair of over the knee socks I have made from Kroy striped wool yarn. Nice to knit but this last batch of 4 balls had breaks in the yarn, one ball wound totally opposite to the rest (colourwise). That’s a problem when you want your socks to match! There will end up being several joins, which is now t desirable in a sock!
Patons Kroy is one of my favourite sock yarns. The price per ball is very reasonable and I love all of the colours. This yarn is a bit thicker (152m per 50 gms.) than most sock yarns (200m per 50 gms.) so if you are wanting to knit a sock larger than a size 9 women or men socks you will need 3 balls instead of 2.
