Killen Sock Yarn from Black Isle Yarns is here at The Woolly Thistle and we couldn't be happier. Made up of Bluefaced Leister and Mohair and available in a gorgeous array of colors. Killen Sock Yarn is spun in Yorkshire with a high twist and is intended as a sock yarn but it is well suited to shawls and light weight garments! Killen Sock has a lot of drape and holds lace well. It blooms, with a slight halo, on washing and blocking. If you are knitting socks, a tight gauge is recommended for increased strength.

Beautiful, Rich, and Soft

This is the most lightweight fingering yarn I have ever used, then it magically works up a little fluffy with a soft halo. I paired the Loch Ness with Raveler Very Busy Monkey's Hyacinthoides Socks for a dynamic result. These have to be one of my favorite pairs of socks yet. The yarn lends itself to the line art of the pattern perfectly for great stitch definition.

Inasmuch as this yarn is probably my new favorite, the dye stained my fingers while knitting, which has never happened to me before with dyed wool yarn. I hope that now with blocking it will remain colorfast and not stain the skin with wear.
