Easy to knit for a new sock knitter! And no tangles.
This sock wool is great to knit with and makes a really nice, lasting sock fabric. I've knitted several pairs of socks (using Winwick Mum's patterns and tutorial) and my favourite pairs to wear are knitted with WYS sock yarn. Hidden Gem, Seascape and Wildflower all come out really nicely in socks.
Great service from Eskdale yarns, too - thanks for the stitch markers!
It's a lovely yarn to knit with.
