Item details

This Fortissima is a self-striping, machine washable sock yarn made in the Czech Republic. It is a 4 ply mix of 75% virgin wool and 25% polyamide. Each ball weighs approximately 1.8 ounces (50 grams) and contains approximately 230 yards (210 meters). Recommended needle size is 2-3 and the gauge is 7 stitches per inch.

You can only knit one sock with one ball of this yarn, so if you'll need two balls if you want to make two socks. Or eight balls if you plan on making socks for your pet octopus. But you still need to be sure that you start your socks at about the same place in the pattern repetition on each ball, otherwise they won't match!

This yarn is still blue, but there is a significant amount of cream here. Mmmm...cream... I'm lactose intolerant, so I can't consume cream. You know who can consume cream--of the iced variety? Grunkle Stan. He routinely eats it for dinner. So we'll call this yarn Grunkle Stan's Ice Cream Dinner. Delicious...
