I bought this to make a pullover sweater that you wear over a tank so the fact that it's not the softest to me is not a problem, remember it is wool. I bought it for the beautiful colors. I have had a problem trying to go back and fix mistakes because the fibers get tangled in the stitches and don't want to release. It is washable, but I will hand wash the sweater I am making just because of the loose pattern stitches in it.

Frustrating Poems Sock Yarn

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:

      This is advertised as sock yarn, but I'm not sure why. It splits easily and is too think is places. The colors are lovely, but that's about it. I bought two skeins, started knitting with one and promptly stopped and returned the unused wool. Cut your losses from the get and don't buy this yarn.

      I bought this to make a scarf. It worked up beautifully, although it was not as soft as I would have liked. Made very nice stripes.

      Sock yarn? I think not.

      Pros

      • Beautiful colors

      Cons

      • Thick and thin

      Best Uses

        Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock:

        I knit socks all the time. I was very hopeful that this beautiful yarn would make lovely, serviceable socks. I didn't even get through the first part of the cuff before I was thoroughly dissatisfied with the yarn. The thick and thin nature of it will not give one the texture needed for socks. I am offering this yarn to a knitting friend because I don't want anything to do with it. The details for the product did not mention the thick and thin nature or I would never have bought it in the first place.

        I love the color and the shades it goes through but, that's all I like about this yarn. I don't like the coarse fuzzy texture and it snags in the pattern I'm using for crochet half doubles.

        Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock:

        I bought this yarn because of the long color change to knit the Nymphalidea scarf. The scarf was my work project: I knit during break time. Note it WAS my work project. I got tired of spending my entire break time untangling instead of knitting. I took the mess home tonight and spent several hours untangling, spit-splicing and rewinding. Note to manufacturer: if you can't wind the yarn without tangling it: don't wind it before selling it.

        Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock:

        This yarn is so beautiful! I bought the Spa Shades and Pulsar color and they look great as socks. I feel like the yarn was easy for me to work with, but it's a little coarse so sometimes it was hard to unravel if I made a mistake.

          I love the yarns I have ordered from WEBS. The quality is the best of any I have ever ordered on line. I have tried other websites, but have not been satisfied and I have gone to craft stores, but can't find the quality. I will always buy my yarn from WEBS!

              I purchased two opposite colors of Poems and alternated them in a fan stitch long scarf. It's simply beautiful and a palette of many colors. I know that many reviews cited that the yarn was knotted in many places...I don't really find this a huge problem. I just back it up, cut off the knot and begin again on the row. With a vibrant colored yarn such as Poems, even though the color may not be similar after the knot....well, they are all used on a color chart that promotes the colors will be compatible. I wouldn't put too much weight on the knot situation.
