Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet DK

The same great yarn as Happy Feet - but thicker! Great for socks and accessories that you want done just a little faster. One 100g skein still makes a pair of socks.

    This is a wonderful sock yarn. I initially bought 4 skeins and came back for several more. The texture is great and I was very pleased with the finished socks.
    I used size 3 needles, as I do for all DK socks, and 44 sts. for a pair of women's socks. The finished size was perfect and they feel wonderful on my feet.
    One skein was just right for one pair with a finished leg of 7 1/2" and heel to toe of 9 1/4" with enough left over for any future darning of thinning heels.

    ...for socks...but I ripped out the sock-in-progress and made the yarn into a glorious vest. Other users of this yarn tell me it softens with washing, but I felt it was a bit too ropy for socks. Your mileage may vary, and the colors are gorgeous. Also I recommended this yarn to some new knitters because it works up quickly. A very fine yarn, just not my preference for socks. I'd buy it again in a minute, however, for other uses!

    This yarn is soft supple and easy to knit with. I enjoy using fine yarn like this to knit both shawls and scarves. Plymouth Yarns have a great selection for socks, scarves and shawls. This yarn is some of the best I've ever knit with.

        I used this yarn for a baby blanket. It was soft and very easy to use. I am very particular about my yarns; I enjoy working with yarn that doesn't feel "fake". The color was perfect and I was not at all disappointed.

              It feels really good while knitting. I hope it wears well.

              Needed another 1/4 of a skein for men's size large socks.

              Wish it came in solid colors, too! I'd buy more.

              Customer service is awesome! The post office lost my package and Webs put a replacement in the mail the same day I called. It arrived 3 days later.

                Great yarn. Used it for an infinity scarf and now I'm knitting a sweater. The stitches come out extremely even and beautiful. I think it's a little too thick for socks but that's just my opinion. I live in the south. No need for thick socks here.Haven't had the chance to wash it yet.

                    I made several pair of socks for Christmas gifts. Then I got a request for leg warmers for a daughter-in-law that runs. They are perfect and so soft. Very nice to work with as well. The yarn doesn't unravel and makes nice even stitches. It was my first time of knitting socks and it was a success.

                      Love the camo color. This is the only camo wool yarn I could find. Thank you for making this color. I would like more camo wool in DK or worsted weight.
