This VARIEGATED sock yarn is composed of 85% superwash merino wool and 15% nylon.With an unparalleled softness, you will want to do more than just knit socks: but also shawls, mittens, baby clothes!
Each skein of 100g (2x50g) contains 400 metres of yarn. This is sufficiently enough to knit a pair of adult stockings.
IMPORTANT: About Speckled and Variegated hand-dyed yarns: because of the random nature of these colorways, identical socks and/or homogeneous color in other projects such as shawls or cardigans will not be possible even when using 2 skeins of the same dye lot. They will make coordinating socks, not an identical pair. It is best to switch rows between the skeins when carrying out your shawls, cardigans & other projects.
I plan to do some mosaic shawls this fall and one of my favorite combinations for that is a dark blue with a lighter color. Navy blue can be tricky - too black or too teal, you never know. But this is a perfect dark blue for what I want. It's a rich deep blue like in a flag. I love Bis-sock to work with - soft and such great stitch definition! And now I'm ready to go with a perfectly patriotic blue!
This is the most amazing color! Such a deep rich purple! I've got it lined up for a color work shawl before the summer is out. Bis-sock is so wonderful to knit with - soft, gorgeous colors always, and such great stitch definition!
I love working with Bis-sock! It's so nice and soft but still has really great stitch definition! The colors are really wonderful - the range of greens especially is so appealing! I just finished a pair of twisted stitch socks in Limette and they are just a breath of spring!
I love making socks (and shawls) with Bis-sock. It has great stitch definition, is wonderful soft in the hands to work with, and has the best colors. I recently used Farfadet to make a pair of colorwork socks and it looked fantastic!
I thought it was navy and yellow, turned out to be purple and yellow. It will still make fun socks, just not the right colors for the sports team. Oh, well.
