It's superwash, so it should be good for socks. I don't think it would felt.

You could always buy the orange and dye it red or maroon.

Does that look like Blaze (Hunter) Orange to you? My dh wants a new hat and mittens for hunting, but I can't tell if that is bright enough to be considered Hunter Orange. What do you think?

Well, personally I don't think it would work as Blaze, but I don't have it here in front of me to verify. The photo makes it look like kind of a "rust", doesn't it?

It looks pretty bright on my monitor here at work, but it's probably more of a darker color. I couldn't find reference to it anywhere else on the web, to see if I could tell what shade of orange it is.

Wouldn't that beats the purpose of buying it cheap?

Yeah, maybe I'll get some and if it's too dark, I'll just overdye it. OK, you talked me into it. And since I'll be ordering anyway, I'll have to add at least one of Suzanne's Ebony circular needles to the order.

Oh no! :shock:

Now I'm officially a "yarn enabler"! :shifty:

I made my BIL a hunting cap and I used Plymouth Encore. It came in a blaze orange. Just an FYI.
