    I used this yarn to make a pair of socks and was delighted. The colours were beautiful and transitioned well from one to the next. As another commenter noted, it takes a long time for the yarn to repeat - which can be good or bad, depending what you like. I really didn't want the socks to match perfectly and was happy with this whimsical result. If you feel adventurous and are prepared to just enjoy what comes next, it's great! The yarn does vary somewhat in thickness and I believe this is deliberate. It makes for some pleasant and subtle variations in the final product - though you definitely want to use double yarn on the heels and toes to ensure good durability.

    I have made several socks out of this yarn. Each time I say I will never do it again, but the colors are lovely. The pair I just finished will be my last though. So:
    Pros: Lovely color transitions
    Cons: Biggest - I found the repeat FINALLY by the heal of the second sock - there was not enough yarn to have made a matching pair of socks. I think I should have had the option of making a matched pair. In addition the yarn splits, and knots.

    I now have 2 lovely socks made from the same yarn and pattern that do not look like a pair of socks.

      Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock:

      I was disappointed in the feel of the yarn. I have sensitive skin so this yarn feels a little coarse and rough to the touch. I am hoping that it will soften with knitting and washing. The colors are vivid and beautiful so I hope it works out. I can always gift the socks out if I need to.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Arrived quickly and in great shape. Wonderful customer service.

        barely twisted/spun

        By Evie

        from Washington DC

        Pros

        • Pretty Colors

        Cons

        • Sheds
        • Snags
        • Splitty

        Best Uses

          Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock:

          Yarn is barely spun in some places. The lack of twist makes knitting with it kind of a pain, since it's easy to split. It's also fuzzy and so it 'catches' on any rough spots on my wooden needles (not that I've ever noticed rough spots before).

          I bough the yarn because the colors are so lovely, and I blythely ignored the comments about how it wasn't well plied, and now I'm regretting it.

          Yarn being splitty is usually not a problem with me, but with this yarn, and the small needles called for, it's very UNenjoyable to knit with this yarn and I have already sworn never to knit with it again (and I'm only on one sock cuff), barring it somehow turning out beautifully (which I doubt it will, since the stitches look uneven and I'm known for having very good even tension and an evenness of stitches on par with a knitting machine).

          If the company makes a more spun/twisted version of this yarn (colors are gorgeous), I might reconsider, but otherwise after an hour of knitting with it, I've sworn off the yarn for good.

              Poems Sock is one of my favorites for small scarves. The color choices are wonderful and they make even the most basic scarf pattern work out to something that looks fabulous.

              For me - it's all about the colors.

              The colours are lovely. I used this to knit a pair of cabled socks. As the colours changed from one to the next this yarn continually broke and I had to go back several stitches and tie off leaving several knots and lumps inside the sock. I would probably NOT buy this yarn again.
