These are the first pair of socks I’ve made using the Wollmeise 100% wool yarn.
The bottom sock looks darker in the picture but it isn’t. I had read that the yarn was a bit splitty so I paid closer attention to what I was doing and didn’t have any trouble with it splitting. It feels great. The twist is very tight and it gives a great definition to the stitches. They feel fantastic on my feet (so says my feet!). I agree that this is a fantastic yarn and worth the effort to find it!
The only problem with this yarn is that it is really, really hard to get! The Loopy Ewe has it every now and then or you can order it directly from the dyer in Germany. She updates here website twice a week . . once at 1 a.m. my time. She doesn’t always have the sock yarn and when she does, it’s gone in a matter of seconds! Of course, there’s sometimes someone selling it on ebay or someone who has it in their stash will sell it every now and then. Maybe its scarcity is part of what makes it so fun to get but it really is great to knit and great to wear.
