Snowbird -- 2-ply Wool/Nylon Blend -- Rocket Sock Medium
**THIS LABEL HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED. ALL SALES FINAL.**
** ONE HANK MAKES ONE PAIR OF SOCKS! **
I don't know about you, but I just don't like everyday hand-knit socks to be bulky. When knitting for the winter months, though, this creates quite a dilemma because I have a devil of a time finding a fingering weight yarn that is thick enough for winter-wear socks without being to bulky to fit into a stylish pair of boots.
Enter Rocket Sock Medium: A medium-weight 2-ply, this wool/nylon blend is an excellent choice for cool/cold weather accessories and socks. The amazing stitch definition of this sheepy yarn makes it ideal for cable patterns, ribbed, or stocking stitch patterns without all the bulk of sport or DK weight yarns AND you are warmer than you would have been with some other fingering weight yarn that sort of looked like it might work out.
Colors blend into one another easily. Perfect for your most stunning knitting or crochet projects. How beautiful this skein would be as a pair of gloves, a lace scarf, a beret, or a pair of socks!
