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.
Hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry.
Gauge : 28 to 32 sts on U.S. sizes 1-2 (2.25 to 2.75 mm) needles = 10 cm (4 inchs)
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!
This was my first yarn purchase from Biscotte as well as from a Canadian company shipping to the U.S. I was so drawn to the color I had to take the chance the picture represented the product. I was NOT disappointed! Besides the color being spot on cantelope, the mohair blend is luxurious. The purchase and delivery was without flaw as well. Thank you so much!
