It is what it is, and it's great

Comments about On-Line Supersocke 4-Ply Relax Color (with Aloe):

Just to comment on the one-star review, with all due respect.

This yarn is designed to be durable, and very thin for fine-fabric wool socks in the German sockmaking tradition. The one-star commenter is correct: this yarn could easily be used as a laceweight one.

The "harsh" quality--remember that these yarns are designed to work up into a fine fabric, then full and soften considerably upon washing. The aloe, jojoba, and spiral in the staple of the wool fibers express themselves with gentle washing and an initial low-temperature short-time (about 15 minutes) tumble in the dryer, in my experience.

I have made socks of Supersocke Relax for four people, all of whom pronounce them incredibly comfortable and nice. They soften with wear and washing, and they wear amazingly well.

I've found it of reliable quality, and the colors gorgeous...even though as I've reported elsewhere I generally find the EU (meaning usually Turkey)-made Supersocke yarns to be slightly less my favorite than the Italian- and German-spun ones. I don't know why this would be the case unless the wool fiber suppliers in OnLine Garne's Turkish supply stream purchase fiber from different breeds of sheep...or what. Despite this, I still have a stash of these yarns larger than I would care to admit to strangers. :D And I have socks from these Turkish-spun Supersocke 4-ply yarns that have been worn (inside alpine, work, and hiking boots), and laundered weekly for four years...and still are in like-new shape!

        Comments about On-Line Supersocke 4-Ply Relax Color (with Aloe):

        This yarn even with aloe has a very harsh feel. I even soaked it in water with hair conditioner and that did not help. It is also very thin, more lace weight. I made footies with it for a gift and I am so disappointed I made a different pair to gift.
