Sock wool yarn selection guide

Chosing the right wool for any project is key to ensure the end product is the best it can be. Most sock patterns offer valuable information on the type of yarn or wool which will give optimum results. The wool type, weight and texture are important factors which will govern the success of any project you undertake.

For beginners the best advice must always be to follow the guidelines on the pattern, more experienced knitters can experiment a little more, a little creativity, backed with experience can produce amazing results. The yarn's weight will dictate the size of any given pattern, small variations can have a dramatic effect so take care. The colour and texture however are less technically important and are ore open the creativity of the knitter and originality of the finished item.
