I loved working with this yarn as the Jojoba and Aloe Vera made my hands so soft. My socks turned out beautiful, but I would recommend using something smaller than the recommended #4 needle. This produced a stretchy sock that is a bit rough on the sole. Great for wearing around the house, though.

I just got through a pair of socks in the colorway "Wood," and they're gorgeous. This is wonderful sock yarn -- my favorite so far.
However, I'm working with a ball of color #01 ("Laub") and it is ugly ugly ugly. The stripes don't look at all like the picture, so I wonder if I just happened upon a weird ball. The yarn's lovely and soft, but holy moly are these going to be some ugly socks...

I think I used color #3 (gras) for a pair of tabi socks for a nature-loving friend who lives in sandals. The stripes were great; the earthy patches took a little getting used to, but I was pleased enough that I can't wait to knit another pair. I love knitting with the jojoba and aloe treated yarn and I'll bet they feel great on the feet!

I initially loved this yarn, really fun and soft to work with, but halfway through was a knot where the yarn had been tied together with a new piece and it completely threw off the striping (so my two socks didn't match). Then, when looking for the color in the remainder of the yarn so that I could tie on at the same point as where I was in the color sequence, the sequencing was backwards - so I had to cut the yarn, rewind the entire remainder of the skein, then find my spot in the sequence before I could continue with my second sock. Disappointing for a first quality fairly expensive sock yarn.
