Bis-sock yarn Arielle self-striping hand-dyed yarn
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.
Each skein of Bis-sock yarn is 100 gr (3.5 oz) 400 meters (435 yards) and is made of 85% merino superwash and 15% nylon.
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)
Have not used the yarng
I bought the yarn as a gift for a friend, but I already have a pair of socks from the same yarn. I love knitting with Biscotte self-striping sock yarns--I now have two pairs of socks (Blue Pansies and Arielle) and I'm working on a third (Gazania). And I have more skeins to knit up! I love the colors of Arielle, but the little crab is also quite special. Crabbing is an important activity and source of income in my community on the Chesapeake Bay.
