Twizzlefoot Sock Yarn by Mountain Colors Yarn Review

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Twizzlefoot Sock Yarn. The color you see above is called Gold Rush, which was provided by Mountain Colors Yarn to review. It is one of those skeins that you won’t want to put down because it’s so soft.


The color changes are very short. Due to the short color changes I would not recommend any type of cabling or lace with this yarn. The color changes by themselves create enough interest without fancy stitch work that would make it too busy.

This yarn, although soft, is very durable. As a result I chose to make a set of socks to test the durability of walking around since it was in fact sock yarn, and would be a project that would come to mind for most users. I did not use a pattern. It is a basic sock recipe done in stockinette stitch with an afterthought heel. I have worn and washed these a couple of times, and they are holding up great by hand washing them as recommended.

Below you will see an example of a completed sock as well as one being worked. I wanted to give both views so you could see a completed project as well as one still on the needles. I used my KnitPicks Rainbow Wood 2.75mm DPNs to get the gauge recommended. Coincidentally the yarn also matched my DPNs, which was a happy accident. 


Overall, I highly recommend this yarn. I traveled with it everywhere while knitting my socks a little bit at a time with small moments I could spare. The colors are perfect to match the approaching fall weather.
