This yarn is one of my favourites for knitting socks.
It knits up well, is easy to care for. I usually do not dry home made socks in the dryer, but that is my own preference, as the yarn does not appear to shrink or felt up.
Patons Kroy Yarn
I love this yarn for making socks. It is so soft to knit with. I have also used this to make mittens.
Kroy Socks Yarn
I love this yarn. It knits up easily and is durable.
Makes thick warm socks
I like this yarn for thick socks. It’s definitely mislabeled as superfine (fingering weight). It’s much thicker than that so be aware you will have to adjust your needle size. I found 3 or 3.25mm needles worked well. Will use this again.
Favourite sock yarn colour. Makes great work socks.
Grey marl Kroy sock yarn
This product makes excellent socks. They are my husband’s favourite ones. It knits up quickly, and socks keep their shape well. Great product.
Heavy Sock Yarn
i bought this to use as contrast for heels and toes with other Paton's marl yarns; however, it is significantly heavier. This is odd because the marl yarns seem quite a bit thinner than Paton's other Kroy sock yarns and this is quite a bit heavier than the other Kroy's. They have at least three weights of yarn all labeled with the same name (Kroy sock) and guage. My socks have two distinctive thicknesses now and I worry the wearer will feel ridges between the foot and the toe and heel. It is so heavy it makes a toe heavier than a tube sock toe and I am worried it won't fit in shoes. On the other hand it will definitely be warm and sturdy. It might be best suited to mitts, hats and, of course, sock monkey's!!!
Wonderful yarn for many purposes
I bought this yarn for socks as Kroy wears like iron. This color is a lot softer than other Kroy yarns I have used. It is fantastic to knit with and I will definitely make a sweater from this yarn. I didn't find it splitty at all as others have found, but I am a very tight knitter, perhaps that is why.
