Yarn Review: Sockalicious

I know I have been talking about my Bellingrath shawl a lot on the blog lately, but I have just have a few final things to say about it.

Um, I loved this yarn. Love, love, love. This yarn is some of the squishiest I have felt. It is so very soft, and I think has exceptionally good stitch definition. I am totally a sucker for any yarn with a tight twist on it. I think it makes your stitches look so much better. This yarn definitely has that.
The content of the yarn is 70% Fine Superwash Merino Wool, 10% Silk, 20% Nylon. It's a good combo. You get the durability you want but the silk makes it just a little bit softer than a lot of the other sock yarn that is out there.
The only drawback for this yarn is the yardage is on the low end. It's 350 yards. Even with my size 11 feet, I can get some socks out of it, but for a lot of shawls (even the smaller ones) I think you would need a second skein.
I know this yarn must be good because I have been thinking about it a lot since finishing my shawl. And, even though I am on kind of a strict yarn budget, another skein may be on it's way to me from Webs. :)

Checking out the Kollage website, I see that there are some patterns out there for this yarn. It's a new yarn for them, so I imagine that more will be coming out as time goes on.

So, head on over to Webs and get yourself some. I think you will really like it.

Happy knitting (and yarn buying)! :)
