Having knit well over 250 pair of socks in the past 6 years I feel qualified to review this yarn. It is delightful to knit with. I cast on toe up using the Magic Loop method and then switched to an 8 inch circular needle US1. This sock yarn is a dream to knit with. The yarn is consistent and does not split. It is soft and has excellent stitch definition. The first sock is being knit with color 2. The patterning is pleasing to the eye. There is enough yarn (459 yards) to easily complete an adult pair of socks with a generous leg, or 2 pair of shorty adult socks. I combined my order with a friend to get the free shipping. She is going to be just as delighted with it as I am. She wants to knit a scarf with hers. There is enough yardage to complete a scarf, or small shawl. This yarn is superb. I highly recommend it.

I had been buying from Hobbii for sometimes now & I have become their regular customer. It's because ALL their yarns which I had bought so far, including this sock yarn, had been fabulous ! They have good quality, mostly soft, and this Antarctica sock yarn is one of them. And the most important thing for me, personally, they will tell you honestly about the yarn. Not hyping it just for the sake of selling it. Not to mention, their services are fantastic. Shipment has always been quick & they are very friendly , too. So yes, I will always be their loyal customer, and keep up the good work , Hobbii ! You guys are awesome ! Lia , Auckland, NZ.

Diese Sockenwolle war in einem sammelpacket, welches im Januar angekommen war. I trage die socken seitdem und wir sind in mitte April. Die Wolle war sehr angenehm zu stricken. Da ich eher locker stricke, habe ich 2.25 mm nadeln benuetzt. I trage und wasche (in der Waschmaschiene und in der Luft getrocknet) seit dem regelmaessig diese socken. Sie sind sehr tragefreundlich. Ich hatte keine verfaebungen, kein’pilling’ und keine aenderung in der passform. Wuerde dies Strumpfwolle in anderen farben angeboten, wurede ich auf jeden fall mehr von dieser Wolle bestellen.

This yarn was included in a wonder bag I had gotten in January of this year and I am wearing and washing the socks regularly since then (it's now mid-April). The yarn was very pleasant to knit up. To get a comfy pair I knitted on 2.25 mm, since I am a loose knitter. I have worn and washed (machine wash, air dry) the socks regularly since and they are holding up great, no bleeding, no pilling, no change in fit and very good wear. If the color selection would be different, I would definitely get more of this yarn.

I bought some of the Antarctica sock wool at a craft market here in New Zealand, I was so impressed with the quality and softness of the yarn I went hunting to find out where I could buy more. I found lots on Hobbi and like a kid in a toy shop, I wanted all the colours. My order arrived in less than a week so now I'm busy knitting socks for Christmas gifts for family who love to go walking, hiking, tramping, I'm sure they will be well received
