what was it you didn't like about this yarn? I've never bought any of these high end sock yarns but I always thought I'd like to (don't think I've ever seen it in person).
This was a $25 skein of yarn that splits very easily, snags easily, and frankly was not enough yarn to make a normal (as in these) pair of men's socks. I had to buy another complimentary skein for toe and heel work and that was after knitting a complete pair three times with three different sized needles to try and get it to stretch. I am using the second skein I bought on his brown socks and I have one more skein I have to get another color for to make another pair of socks for someone. If I am going to make expensive socks and I consider a $25 pair of socks expensive, I want it to be enough yarn and the quality to be top notch. I do love the colorway, but won't order it again I am afraid.
