        Soft!

        Comments about On-Line Supersocke 100 4-Ply Walking Color:

        OnLine's Supersocke yarns are among my favorite of the German brand sock yarns, though they frequently in my experience are spun in Turkey and sometimes Italy. IME the Turkish yarns can vary widely in texture. But this line is pleasing indeed.

        I was surprised by how springy and soft this incarnation of Walking is. While working it up, I felt that it had more fluff and halo than I usually like. I feared the resulting socks would be "hairy." Instead they are amazingly lustrous and soft soft soft. I like them best for cabin slippers/clogs rather than boot socks, but that may be because I worked them a little looser. To force them into an Alpine boot I find the stitches gape, though they have always resnugged upon washing. (We line dry, never machine dry, our handmade socks even where the manufacturer suggests it.)

        This Walking line has thicker solid color stripes separated by stripes of white with jacquard-type flecks. The thicker striping allows for wider-row repeats, which means that this yarn can give interesting striped effects in something other than socks, like children's or toddlers' vests, mittens, sweater fronts, etc. I also like these patterned yarns for knitted and crocheted blocks and other modular approaches.

              I make women's and men's socks for sale. The softness is good for this purpose, but I will want to see results after washing as I thought there was a slight tendency to mat/shed as I was handling the product.

                  I recently knitted two pairs of adult socks with this beautiful self striping yarn. The medium womens pair left over enough to knit a pair of baby socks while the 100g skein was just the right amount for men's large socks. Both pairs washed up nice and soft and were a pleasure to knit.

                        I love to knit socks with this yarn, There are no knots, slubs and it does not split. The design pattern is consistent for matching the 2nd sock.
                        I will be ordering more.

                              I made footies form this yarn for Christmas Gifts and I am not happy with the results. I bought four different colors and the weight of the yarn varied color by color from very thin (lace weight) to sort of ok. One color especially is quite harsh to the touch.
