Comments about Berroco Sox Metallic:

I was excited to purchase this yarn, since I had wanted to try new yarns. However, when I started working with this, it was definitely different from what I expected. It is a tad coarse for me, and the skein that I received was in no way dyed evenly. There were breaks in the colors that were so bad that multiple stitches ended up being plain white with no color whatsoever. (This did not defer me from using the yarn.) I will find a use for this, but I had originally wanted to knit a pair of socks with it, and it's just not going to work for that. The color I purchased was Guava, which is gorgeous by the way! Very unique.

Service and delivery comments:

All deliveries I have received from WEBS have been relatively quick and their customer service is fantastic!

    Comments about Berroco Sox Metallic:

    The label said 380 yards, I was amazed at how long the socks become. The finished socks are high midcalf, size 10 1/2, I was able to knit two matching socks, I knit until I reached the color that I began the sock cuff, broke the yarn at that point and started the second sock so the second sock would be appx. the same. I still had enough yarn to knit an envelope for a small kindle that I own.I still have a small ball of yarn (rewound) that is appx. 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
    It was easy to knit, needles didn't split the yarn. The metallic thread is wound into the yarn in such a way that it doesn't separate from the yarn, needles don't split it from the rest of the plies. I admit I was leery of purchasing it at first, but thought the colors were interesting and I wanted to try it in spite of past experiences with metallic yarns. I was pleasantly surprised and satisfied with the finished project.
