This is ideal as a sock yarn but can be used for any 4 ply pattern. And yes, hand-painted, multi-coloured yarn makes great socks but, sadly, sometimes you do need grey ones. Or even black.
Truly Wool Rick 4 ply’s also particularly great to use with vintage patterns for either 4ply or 3 ply – or so one of our regulars tells us. Personally I’m still plucking up courage to face knitting a whole jumper in 3ply, so I can’t vouch for it myself.
