Great sock yarn!

It's called On-line Supersocke 100, (www.online-garne.de), with a 45% cotton, 40% virgin wool, and 15% polyamid content, the yarn feels really great when knitted into socks.  I used a size 2 bamboo needle for the stocking stitch portion of the sock, and a size 1 bamboo needle for the ribs.

The sock is soft, cool, and feels great...very different from the feel of the superwash wool I usually use for socks, and even feels better than the acrylic yarns I've used for socks.

On the size 2 needles it knits at 7 1/2 st/1".

I hated this yarn at first, and have found that the rib really needs to be knitted on smaller needles over the stocking stitch (something I don't usually do with socks), and once I made this minor adjustment, I've come to love this yarn.

Can't wait for my LYS to have their annual sale!

is the yarn available in the USA?
...I don't know how to order it from the www.online-garne.de site...

Yeah....I know about the Dancing yarn from Knitpicks, and have already ordered lots of it for future projects!  Parade from KnitPicks is great too, on size 3 needles, makes really soft, warm socks!
