Your tootsies will thank you for knitting socks in this lovely color-washed sock yarn. Classic Elite Alpaca Sox Discontinued Colors contain a generous dose of 60% alpaca with a heaping helping of merino to make soft, warm socks (or mittens!), and the array of colors in each skein makes for real luxury. A big skein of 450 yards makes two socks and then some.  

Note: You will need approximately 400 yards for a basic pair of socks for an average women size.

My mistake not reading the label, but I simply couldn't imagine selling sock yarn, that had to be hand washed. So after many many hours knitting up soft cabled long socks, I now have a felted sock too small to even use as a sock puppet.

So learn from my mistake, only use for items that won't need constant wahing - like socks do.

Comments about CLASSIC ELITE YARNS Alpaca Sox Overstock Colors:

I've given this yarn a rating of 4 stars because I have not yet knit with it. I don't know how it knits or how well the finished product - in this case, socks - will hold up. The yarn is beautiful, both texture and color. The alpaca in it makes for a very soft yarn. I'm looking forward to using it.

Comments about CLASSIC ELITE YARNS Alpaca Sox Overstock Colors:

This is a wonderful yarn and I've purchased several colorways...not all overstock...as its a delight to knit with. Just completed a shawl using two colorways and hated for the project to end. The yarn is so soft I hated to stop knitting each day. I've only used it for shawls where it holds it's shape wonderfully. With 450 yards per hank, lots of possibilities can be knit with a single hank.

Comments about CLASSIC ELITE YARNS Alpaca Sox Overstock Colors:

I really like this yarn for the shawl I am making. Because the two plies are loosely twisted it can be a little bit splitty until you get the hang of knitting with it. It feels nice in my hands as I am knitting along. I don't know how it will block out since i haven't finished my project yet. I don't think it would be very good for socks in spite of the name. The yarn has very little give, so the socks may not be stretchy enough for a good fit.

Comments about CLASSIC ELITE YARNS Alpaca Sox Overstock Colors:

I bought this yarn to knit socks and am highly disappointed that it is handwash only. Also the yarn is very thin and fibrous so it's hard to do yarn overs without spitting the yarn. I am also disappointed that the mini cable design of my sock pattern does not show up well with this type of yarn.

Comments about CLASSIC ELITE YARNS Alpaca Sox Overstock Colors:

I have bought many hanks of this stuff and have yet to find a join mid-hank. It has a nice halo, but isn't too fragile and knits up very well. I'm quite pleased with how it blocks, too.

          I wanted a pale pink base for dyeing. Used Wiltons Violet to speckle it. The color broke well into blues, reds and violet.
