Deborah Norville may not be as glamorous as Wollmeise, but when Joann Fabric is having a yarn sale who can resist?
I think I suffer a bit from knitting ADD, because whatever yarn I bought recently I immediately want to knit with. As such, within days of bringing this yarn home I was ready to try a new sock pattern percolating in my brain.
The yarn is nice and smooth, plus it has a pretty sheen, no doubt a result of the fiber content of 50% wool, and for the eco minded of us, 25% bamboo to go with strengthening 25% nylon.
With this fiber content, I wonder how they will hold up on the long run. I imagine they’ll be fine, but I’ll try to remember to update you sometime after the 2oth washing.
The smooth texture makes it nice to work with. The self striping is crisp and well delineated. However, there does tend to be moments of dye splash or something of the like, as there are occasional spots of a different color. Me being of a perfectionistic ilk, I am not loving that, but oh well.
I finished the first sock with one ball of the Deborah Norville Serenity Sock Weight yarn in Teal Tease. I didn’t encounter any knots or snags. And the resulting sock is very soft and comfy.
All in all, I recommend it. You certainly can’t beat the price!
