The yarn is pretty with greens, yellow, pink and orange but it's not the same colours which is disappointing. Starting socks with this yarn and I expect it'll work up like any Kroy yarn.
This is not the same coloirs as the "clover colours" I bought last year. Much brighter. Not fond of the radical colour change.
I have been knitting for years but recently I wanted to knit Sox and my sister in law said to get the Kroy wool, which I did. The socks turned out very well and my adult granddaughter loves them. The last pair I made her was about 15 years ago and she said they are beginning to show the wear and I think she uses them as slippers!.......I used Kroy wool then as well. I think it is the Best Sox wool and the price is excellent.
This yarn knitted up beautifully into a pair of autumn themed socks. I ordered several more balls to make more socks for all my friends!
Makes a thicker sock...warmer for winter!
