This Regia is a self-striping, machine washable sock yarn made in Italy. It is a 4 ply mix of 70% virgin wool, 23% polyamide, and 7% polyester. This yarn is called "Stretch" for a reason--the polyester gives it a little extra elasticity! Each ball weighs approximately 1.8 ounces (50 grams) and contains approximately 219 yards (200 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 a combination of gray, navy blue, and a bright blue that is basically like that bit of blue sky on a cloudy day. That blue is what makes this yarn more like WHOOOOO than boooooooo. Because, let's face it, without it the yarn would be perfect for boring people. But with it the yarn is perfect for SNORING people! I'm sorry. I really wanted "boring" to rhyme with something more like "exciting," but it didn't work. Turns out "boring" doesn't rhyme with a lot. Boring, snoring, coring, goring, pouring, roaring--ROARING. Roaring could be kind of the opposite of boring, right? So let's go with that. This is ROARING YARN. Because that little bit of blue just roars awesomeness.
