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:

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!

        Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock:

        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.

        Too many knots in one skein :(

              Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock:

              I'm a little bit frustrated about this nice colorchanging yarn. I ordered it online. I'm still knitting on the Wingspan scarf, a Christmas gift for my godmother, and on 1/3 way I have already 3 knots in my project. I have no idea how many will follow until I finish it. I know that knots can happen ... but why can't the campany mark yarns with knots and offer it cheaper ? I paid the full prize and have no fun knitting the project. This is my first time that I wouldn't recommend a yarn ... I'm sorry. But I know Webs has more yarn brands to enjoy knitting :)

                Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock:

                I bought a skein of "Cruise" to make fun socks for my teenager. I was very surprised at the dry, scratchy texture. I don't think I would use it for socks after all. However, the color transitions are very interesting and it makes a beautifully colored fabric. The yarn seems to be very consistent in thickness and texture. It does twist up a bit as it comes out of the skein, but you get that sometimes.

                Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock:

                Beautiful long-repeat slow transition color changes with minimal muddy areas between colors. Single ply rustic yarn with a bit of overtwist makes occasional kinking a problem. Strongly suggest rewinding pull skeins into outside pull balls and putting them in plastic zip bags before knitting. Used this in combo with a single color Zauberball for a rectangular variant on a 10-stich modular spiral lap blanket. Two skeins of Poem plus one of the Zauberball is enough for a baby blanket. Narrow strips of garter knitting show off the color gradient of the Poems to excellent effect. Very pleased
