Boy, did I enjoy knitting this yarn. It's a four-ply yarn, soft and heavier than a fingering weight... I'd say it's almost a DK weight. I knit the socks up on a size 2 needle and gosh, did they ever come out nice: a nice springy fabric that had a thick, sturdy-feeling hand. The socks seem very hard wearing, too.
I purchased this at a local chain craft store for as little as $4/ball but heck, I might be induced to pay full price as it's a really nice yarn, and has even made my personal "top ten" list of sock yarns I love to knit.
Patons Kroy socks is wonderful to work with. The gauge with dpns size 2 is perfect for a warm pair of socks. The subtle coloration of the Kroy striped is lovely for both men and women. The wool washes perfectly and holds its shape. The feel of this sock wool is comforting and the colors blend beautifully with jeans or whatever. Patons does a great product that is reasonably priced. Two skeins make a good tall pair of socks. One skein will make a pair of footsies.
What I do not like is the irregular colors. You cannot make a matching pair of socks with it. Each skein has different lengths of color and the strength of color. Some like socks that do not match--I am one who wants my socks to look like a pair.
I still don't know what to use this yarn for since I did not find it's variety of colors out until past the time of return.

I also received two skeins, one that looked orange and one green. Since they are variegated, I wondered if they both actually were the same. Read morePublished 5 months ago by graceandtruth
