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.

                Service and delivery comments:

                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.
