This yarn knits up nicely for socks. It’s one of my favorite yarns to work with.
The dye lot was slightly different but not enough to deter from the overall effect. The yarn shipped to me was softer than the balls I had been working with to knit the socks but it worked. I do find an inconsistency in the terminology in the sock wools- superfine is a deceptive description among sock wools- in general.
I have taken up knitting socks during this isolation. I love the Kroy yarns but I find that there is a definite difference in thickness between the different colours. They say superfine but are not all the same. Lovely socks when finished but I had to start again on two pairs because the yarn was thicker and I needed a larger needle. I can’t wait to give my socks to my children for Christmas presents. I hope they like them as much as I have loved making them!
Depuis que je tricote des bas, j'utilise toujours cette laine et je ne suis pas déçue.
Très belle laine de grande qualité. Chaude et agréable
This yarn is fantastic! I have used the brand several times now, and it isbwonderful! I use around 1 1/2 balls to make a pair of ankle socks. The gradient looks awesome regardless ofbthe colour, and this blue is so beautiful. My only warning is thatvthe socks won't match each other due to the colour changes, but thats part of the fun! Shipping was fast and reliable, I definitely reccomend this product!
