Bernat Sox yarn???
I have been on a sock kick and made all my socks out of Opal. I have a friend who is allergic to wool so I found some Bernat Sox yarn online. There wasnt much in options for stripes or anything that wasnt a solid color. I love the way the yarn feels - its SOOO soft. What's the deal with the yarn - is it discontinued or something - why is it not easy to find out in locations - or really online for that matter? Is there something comparible to it - I really love how soft it is.

I like the patterning of Opal yarns but is there something like that but softer like the Bernat Sox? :thinking:

I'm not sure if it's discontinued or not but I want to say that I'm using the Bernat Baby yarn and it's really lovely. It's so soft too.

I purchased a bunch of it off ebay and the supplier I bought from said that it was being discontinued. Too bad, it really is a nice, economical sock yarn.

I just got a bunch too, and its hard to find.
I like it just as much as the expensive stuff and won't cry when they wear out, over the price tag.

Here's an ebay store with Bernat Sox for $1/ball. They don't have any patterned yarn left, just solid colours, but a really good deal!

Darn it! Why does good stuff get discontinued? I'll just have to hunt and find anything I can and stock up on it. Hopefully something similar will come out from another company. Socks are just so popular to make now, you'd think all the yarn companies would make sock yarn.

Thanks for the help guys!

You might want to call your local WM. I bought quite a bit of it at mine when we put it on clearance {actually I bought it all except for the white... I don't BUY white socks, why would I want to knit them?}. Two of the pictures I posted on my blog this past weekend were of socks knitted out of Sox. I'm working on a pair of ankle socks for my neice right now out of it too.

I just checked, and Bernat Sox is still listed on their website. It could be that they aren't shipping it into the US anymore. Now tha tI think about it, my WM stopped carrying it, but there is at least 2 other WMs here in town that still carry it.
