This is my favourite sock yarn to date. Haven’t finished yet so can’t comment on the wearability or comfort but the colours are muted and soft. Really enjoying “the knit”.
I actually got a Kroy sock unicorn with my two, the sequence actually matches over the 2 balls! I will say this is a thinner yarn than some of the other Kroy yarns, just to be aware. That said, so beautiful!
Review of yarn.
I love this Kroy yarn.
Size of yarn
I'm disappointed with size of the yarn. I made a pair of socks with the blue raspberry color yarn, same brand and love them. Then I started the same pattern same size needles again with the Brown Rose Marl and was disappointed to see that my socks were going to be too tight :( cause the yarn is finer, how is this possible?
Nice sock colours
I love this yarn for socks and this colour is my favourite. I ordered on a Thursday and the yarn arrived on Monday
This yarn surprised me, as I use Kroy sock wool quite often, and usually need two skeins for a pair of socks, and with the brown rose marl I just used one. So now I wil have two pairs from the two skeins purchased. It does seem a slightly finer yarn than the other 4 ply Kroy, and I am not sure if the colour of the dyes has anything to with it. This yarn is a mix of a dusty pink and grey tweed. It is attractive striped pattern when made up into aocks.
The Go-To Yarn for Socks
Always my favourite sock yarn. Great colours, great price, and wears really well through multiple washes.
Hard wearing sock yarn
This slightly thicker than average sock yarn wears like iron. Two balls and you get two socks of pure awesome. If you're wanting socks that match, however, stay away from FX or the stripes. Skeins are often wound opposite of one another, and sometimes color repeats in FX do not exist. Personally, I love having mismatched socks.
