Bis-sock is the sock yarn par excellence and because of its unparalleled softness, you will want the Bi-sock yarn to knit more than socks: shawl, scarf and mittens made with this yarn will charm you with their sweetness.

Machine washable in cold water and lay flat to dry.
Gauge : 28 to 32 sts on 2.25 to 2.75 mm = 10 cm (4 inchs)
Purchased the "Bears" self-striping yarn in the hope of making an adult men's stocking cap. Hmm. The repeats aren't long enough to knit it in the round so I am knitting two pieces to sew together upon completion. Still only get two rows at the most of a color. Quite disappointing. Sock yarn really means sock yarn. But, the feel of this yarn is incredible. It is yummy. So while the finished project won't be what I had envisioned, it will be very comfy and luxurious.
