Comments about "" Petals Sock:

I knitted the Church Mouse Beret complete with beads from a random skein of Petals. It came out beautiful: soft, flexible, nice angora halo. There is so much yarn on one skein you can easily make a matching pair of fingerless gloves or a cowl to go with the hat. With so many friends and family undergoing chemo, I purchased Petals in every color and have now knocked out five beautiful berets. All their bald heads are now warm and stylish. One of these days I will actually knit something for myself out of this wonderful yarn. I have only washed by hand so can't speak to machine washing. It blocks great. Be careful though, frogging is difficult if you make a mistake, because of the angora. I can attest from experience that frogging may be difficult, but it isn't impossible. LOL

    Comments about "" Petals Sock:

    I confess that I have not worked with this yarn yet. My plan was to use this for a design for a pattern I am working on for fingerless gloves. The yarn is very beautiful and soft, but because of the "tweedy" nature of the colorway, I am not sure if the eyelet design I have in mind will show to best advantage. Currently, I am considering a design for a "shawlette" instead.

            I bought this yarn last year and am now making socks out of this yarn. Beautiful, luxury that I can afford. I did not find the yarn to tangle, but I do rewind all my yarn before using it. Super nice yarn, would recommend it to all.

            Comments about "" Petals Sock:

            This is the softest yarn (not just sock yarn) I have ever knit with. I have peripheral neuropathy which causes the skin on my feet to be unusually sensitive. So thesesocks feel like heaven on my feet. Since thereof generally an inverse relationship between softness & durability in yarn, I am a bit concerned about how long these socks will last. The main problem I had with this yarn was that the angora did not seem to be well spun in - causing a fuzzy halo. The main problem had with this yarn was that it was far more tangled in the ball than any other yarn I've ever used. I think thatis because the angora didn't seem like it was spun in with the wool very thoroughly. The result ISA fuzzy halo that tends to stick to itself. I had to spen about 45 minutes untangling the initial clump of yarn that came out of the center if the all score I could astounding on (& it must be designed as aa a center pull ballbecause the only end I could find came from the center - even after having used enough yarn for a pair of socks, I still cannot find the other "outside" end.). Also the fact that the angora isnot blended well with the other fibers means that little fuzz balls form along the strand & tend to slide along, picking up more fuzz & growing) as you knit until they get to about a mm thick at which point, one has to carefully clip them off. Despite the fact that dealing with the stickiness of the yarn probably added acouple of hours to the kniing time, I still like this yarn & wish it came in more colors especially solids. It would be wonderful for hats, scarves, mittens & shawls. It would definitely be close to the top if the list for next to skin wear especially in view of the reasonable price.
