Meet Antarctica – an incredible sock yarn with exciting prints and very beautiful colors.
The cool effect appears due to the very special color technique Space Dye, and the finished knitting get a top modern look with stripes in fabulous, mixed hues.
The quality is premium, and the good, long fibered wool is of coursed reinforced with polyamide. Thus your home knitted socks will be durable and they are easy to care for since they are machine washable on 86℉ (30℃). Just remember always to use wool detergent.
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.
I have just received my shipment and the colors are beyond my expectations! I can wait to cast on. My order consisted of colors 2, 3, 9, and 10. I am definitely going to order the remaining colors.
I learned of your website from the Urban Gypsy Crochet, and I’m so glad I tuned in that day. I will be sure to recommend to my knit/crochet friends.
Wonderful yarn! Works up beautifully on my needles. I’m working on a shawl and two skeins made a very elegant shawl that I can wear with a dress for dinner or just jeans and a classic t shirt.
Purchased quite a few skeins so they’ll be at my fingertips when whatever color variations I prefer.
Thank You Hobbii, I’ve 2 more orders waiting.
This fiber knits up beautifully. It is not at all fuzzy or splity...it is spun with nice long staples. Very soft to the touch. It is knot free. The colorway is wonderful and covers a wide range of shades in a color in a slow repeating pattern with nice personality. Very happy. Must get more!
