I knitted about 20 pair of socks from this about 15 years ago for different people: they are all still alive after years of use! I love this brand.

This is the yarn I made my very first pair of socks from and I have yet to find any other yarn I like better. It machine washes and dries like a dream and just keeps on keeping on. I love it!

I too made my first pair of socks with the Froehlich Blauband fingering yarn about 25 years ago and I am still wearing them, this yarn is the absolute best for socks I bought the yarn in Denmark but where can I buy it in the USA ?

100% agreement on the sheer joy of this excellent yarn - I knitted red Special Blauband socks for my late husband (using the included reinforcing thread for toes and heels) 25 years ago and his grandson wears them today, good as new.
