This yarn is composed of 85% machine-washable merino wool and 15% nylon. Because of its unparalleled softness, you will want to knit more than stockings: but also shawls, mittens, baby clothes!
Each skein contains 100g of wool, 400 metres of yarn. This is more than enough to knit a pair of adult stockings.
Use needles of 2.25 to 2.75 mm for a sample of 28 to 32 stitches = 10 cm.
In the self-striping version this sock yarn is dyed by hand so as to create stripes when you knit it. It's almost magic!!
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.
This yarn has stunning color and feels wonderful to the touch. I just wish I had realized that I could have gotten it in DC. Either way, it's wonderful!
