Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet

A great sock yarn from Plymouth. Happy Feet will make your feet happy! Made of superwash merino for easy care and a touch of nylon for durability, you will be pleased with the results. The colors are fun and sophisticated and will lend well themselves to any sock pattern. And at the price, you can knit your feet happy! Plan two skeins of Plymouth Happy Feet for a pair of socks (be sure to check your pattern requirements, as some patterns may require more).  Made in Peru.

    I really, really like Happy Feet. It is soft and comfortable to wear on my feet. It is definitely not itchy at all, and I would definitely gift socks made from this yarn to others. But... When it comes to socks, I would prefer that they are machine washable and dryable. These are, actually, even though the label indicates that they are not. But, they do felt after several washings. When they felt, they don't lose any of their softness. It's almost a good felting that makes the socks stronger. I personally like that they have felted, but if you do not like felted socks, and you decide to machine wash and dry them, then you will be disappointed. My only other comment is that the color repeats are very short in this multi-colored yarn. Only about 2 or 3 stitches in most cases. This is also not a problem, but something to be aware of when selecting a pattern for this beautiful yarn! I just did my standard 3 x 1 rib socks, and they look pretty good!

    I used this yarn for sleeve-long half-gloves to wear at the office, and the result is a pair of warming (especially for indoor use) bright gloves that I wear almost daily in the winter. I am slightly worried that the yarn is too thin so that I will be wearing holes in the gloves sooner than I thought. That said, this yarn knits up very fast and so the work involved was minimal. I found this to be good value for money.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet:

      It is a good sock yarn, I like that this yarn has only 10% of synthetic fiber. I don't like synthetic fibers even for my socks! I use this yarn to knit heel and tow area of the sock.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet:

      The colors are very solid and the mixes are beautiful as you knit the pattern of the yarn comes out. I noticed once when my hands were very dry and rough it tended to pill the yarn in one spot but if I keep my hands soft with lanolin that doesn't happen.

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet:

        I made cowls with this yarn. I loved the silky feel on my fingers while knitting. The finished products were wonderfully soft. I had no problems with the quality of this yarn - no splitting, kept it's shape through many un-pickings and re- knittings. The only con was that it I had to roll the yarn into a ball before use.

          I loved the short color repeats. I was doing a vest, and there was no striping. All of the colors blended beautifully creating a stained glass look.
          The yarn is soft, and strong. I will use it for socks next.

              This yarn makes beautiful socks and it has a great hand while knitting. It stays together and it also is easy to back knit if a mistake is made. One thing that irritates me about some yarns is they are very difficult to undo stitches when one needs to correct a mistake. They tend to split and come apart and Happy Feet doesn't do that.
