I am such a sucker for six-ply German sockenwolle. This line is made in Turkey...and the Turkish-manufactured OnLine Supersocke yarns sometimes strike me as a bit hairy for my taste (I like the tautly spun glossier ones)....
But still, this is a wonderful, durable, comfortable, beautifully patterned yarn both for winter socks and for smaller garments that can take advantage of the pattern repeats.
I've used it (and other Online Supersocke six-ply yarns) for fingerless gloves for my archer and riflewoman friends...and also for the fronts of button-vests with the back worked in a solid color. The repeats can work out beautifully for those narrow panels, and sometimes I've worked them in "modular" format, carefully matching the stripes. Same for a couple of scarves I've made, constructed in this striping manner. The results are really dramatic!
The yarn is great for field wear, as it stays warm even when wet. It washes up beautifully from field muck, dries quickly near the campstove, and wears like iron.
