When I first started reading knitting blogs I was amazed by the amount of passion many knitters feel for their sock yarn of choice.
As I've had the opportunity (and funds) to try many of the sock yarns, I've developed my favorites as well.
The first thing I did was look at the weight of the yarns I had on hand right now.
(This was done quickly and for my benefit... I was not going to archival quality measurements here.)
Fleece Artist Merino 20 wpi
Koigu KPPPM 20 wpi
Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock 22 wpi
Fleece Artist Seawool 18 wpi
Sundara's superwash merino 22 wpi
Trekking XXL 21 wpi
I was actually a bit surprised because Lorna's has always seemed so thin to me.
Anybody have any long term data on how it affect the wear of the yarn?
