What do you pay for sock yarn? How much yarn is needed to make a pair?
I was in Michaels for a ball of wool to make a headband today and some Kroy sock yarn caught my eye. I’ve been thinking I might try socks in the new year.
Since I’ve never made them before, I flipped through a book there to get an idea of how much yarn I’d need. It suggested 200g per pair. At $4 per 50g ball (on sale from $5), a pair of socks would cost $16. (Canadian funds)
I’ve paid $70+ for wool for a sweater before, but this price for socks seemed steep and surprised me. So what do they cost you?
