A very versatile yarn that works up into warm socks that are slightly heavier than traditional "sock" weight yarn. This is my favorite yarn. I love the knit and crochet fingerless mittens made out of it. A great weight yarn for sweaters for the entire family, baby blankets, booties, bonnets, hats, scarves, cowls and so much more.
Each skein is 2 ounces and 140 yards.
