I’m wanting some beautiful sock yarn to knit for my mom for Christmas.
I found this on eBay. It’s:
[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=5]2 [/SIZE][SIZE=5]skeins of[/SIZE][SIZE=6] Shepherd Sock [/SIZE][SIZE=5]#70[/SIZE]SIZE=5
[/SIZE][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=5]80% Superwash Wool, 20% Nylon[/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=4]
70 grams / 2.5 oz / 196 meters / 215 yards each skein
Needle 2 US (2.5-3 mm)
7 sts = 1’’ (28 sts = 10 cm)[/SIZE][/FONT][/FONT]
It costs about $18 each hank but how many socks will each make??? And is this really great sock yarn? I’ve started knitting a sock with Knit Pics Essentials and it’s SOOOOOOOOO thin. I don’t think I like it for socks. I’d like something I can use a size 4 needle…if you have any recommendations, let me know I’m still SOOOOOOOOOO new to yarn knowledge. I guess I’m a yarntard.
