Mer --> It's Finnish Novita Nalle Colori yarn. It's 75% wool and 25% polyamide. You're supposed to use size 3 1/2 mm needles, don't know what mine were (the problem associated with borrowing needles from your mum who keeps them all mixed up in a plastic bag)
The yarn is very easy to knit and very durable. I've had socks from Nalle yarn that I have worn for years without too much wear and tear - exactly why I have so many pairs of socks :rollseyes:
javede --> It wouldn't have taken me long at all if i hadn't run out of yarn while knitting the first sock :rollseyes:
I'd say it took me about 3 days to knit each sock. The pattern is really easy to memorize so it makes the whole knitting process much faster.
