I knit a pair of socks using Pearl-McPhee's "A Good Plain Sock" pattern, they came out awesome and made a pair of simple socks into a pair of very fancy and colorful socks.I definitely am getting more of this yarn in some more colors. You can work a pair of very easy socks up in no time and they look like you are a master at patterned color knitting.Even though these are superwash they have nice old-fashioned wooly feel to them. I used colorway "Dundee" for my socks.

i read all the reviews about this yarn and since they were all positive I purchased the lollipop. I even waited for it since it was on backorder. When I started to knit with it the colors bled into each other. I thought maybe it was just at the beginning of the skein. But no it is all the way through. Berroco is a very good product so I assume it was just this particular dye lot. So beware of dye lot 2667 color1410! This won"t prevent me from purchasing this yarn, it was just a bad batch.

Web's delivery service is the best!

      100-gram balls all run about 94 grams; consistently short-weighted. Also on the sturdy side - you may have to go down a needle size compared to other sock yarns.

      good for pin loom weaving

      By Sarah Grace

      from Winchester, Virginia

      About Me Avid crafter, Novice

      Pros

      • Light
      • Nice Texture
      • Soft

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Weaving

        Comments about Berroco Sox:

        I bought this sock yarn in the Kingston colorway for my pin loom weaving. At first I thought I made a mistake in choosing this colorway, but no, it was so beautiful when I got it in the mail!

        It weaves up beautifully, I love how the color changes and no two squares are exactly alike. The resulting square is very soft and light. I'm planning to make a dress from the squares. And I'll need to have an under-dress for it because of how light the yarn is. I think sock yarn is the absolute lightest I should use for pin loom weaving.

        I'll update this review or write a new one when I've completed the dress and have washed it.

            I used size 1 dpns. Did a knitted cast-on (stretchier--and cast on with one sized larger needles and rib a couple of rows then switch to the size 1). Cast on 56 stitches. Did 8 inches of knit 2, purl 2 ribbing, a heel flap of 2 1/2-3 inches, about 19 gusset stitches, and was able to knit a pair of socks for my sister, sized 9 shoe. It was a blast to see the colors evolve!! And a good amount left over. My sister loved the socks!!

                    I usually only knit socks and small baby sweaters.
                    The self striping yarn is perfect for both of these projects. They add color and interesting pattern to what could have been a dull project.
