    I made a baby sweater out of this yarn and knew I was in BIG trouble. It took a total of 14 baby sweaters in 8 flavors of the yarn before I was satiated. Be forewarned - this is a very addictive yarn.

    Fun sock yarn- 2 balls not quite enough

    2 balls too little for an average woman's socks but 3 balls would be way too much. Balls should have been packaged with this in mind - maybe 60 gram balls?

      This yarn was used to knit a lace shawl for my daughter. The weight was light yet warm (100% wool). Easy to knit with, self striping pattern.

        Comments about Adriafil Knit Col:

        This was the yarn that got me hooked on striped socks. However, I realized after I made the first pair that they had to be knit much more tightly than I thought. Label says to knit on #7's; I knit them on #3's, but that really was too loose, felt grainy on the bottoms when I walked on them. I think it's because the yarn isn't very dense, probably more a sport yarn than DK. The bottoms are now very thin after only a dozen or so wearings.

        I will knit the next ones on #1's, and pray that there's enough yarn in two balls to make two socks.

        In spit of all this, I'm giving it 4 stars because most self-striping sock yarn is rough, and this is not. Wish Malabrigo or MadelineTosh would do some self-striping yarn, with a little more body.

        This product knits up in stripes but not as pictured on this site for socks. I am wondering if I knitted it into something large that might change. But it is more pink than I expected.

              This is one of my go to yarns for baby projects. The socks are adorable with the color patterns and I like to make matching hats and stuffed sock monkeys to go with them. Makes a great gift for a new mom, especially if you can match it to a sweater!

                    The balls are small and I would suggest that you buy more than you think you need.
