A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Deep Unrelenting Gray

This superwash merino wool is the fingering weight version of Blue Moon’s signature sock yarn Socks that Rock (aka STR). However, because of its elasticity, it’s not your typical, everyday fingering yarn. Do not under any circumstances wash or dry this yarn in a machine…or even agitate a lot in a sink. You will end up with felt.

Though I am knitting a simple lace shawlette, the well-rounded/energized 3-ply STR makes wonderful textured knit with stitch clarity.

I love how the tightly plied yarn feels, the way it behaves, how it knits up, and the colors are quite alluring. However, if you can’t stand a bit of wonky pooling (varies depending on size of project…from socks to sweaters) and let the yarn do what it will, this may not be the high-end yarn for you.

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

  1. I love the springiness of STR. But why do you say this superwash merino felts? I put my STR mediumweight socks in the washer all the time, and sometimes in the dryer, too.

  2. PS that's a lovely semi-solid gray. No pooling there!
