Excellent Sock Yarn!

I've been making boot socks with this yarn and it's not only wonderful to work with but it's strong, it knits up beautifully, it knits up quick since it's fairly thick, and it really is washable. The colors are rich and tasty. Give it a try!

wonderful subtle color and so soft

The lavender color is beautiful and I think it goes well with the light pink, as well as amethyst. The yarn is super soft, just yummi. Cables look good and I am planning on making a hat and a scarf - not itchy wool at all. Don't know about how much it will stretch when washing or wearing. So far - I definitely recommend. Knits up quickly too.
