This 4 ply works well as a sock yarn but it is soooo much more!! I used 1 ball to make a statement cowl. Keep the stitch design simple, like the chevron, and the yarn will reward you with subtle strips of colour. Just divine!! The colours are blended beautifully to allow you to create your own work of art. Maybe a one-off shawl or a classy lightweight blanket or soft hand warmers?
