I’ve been licking my computer-wounds by diving into my stash of Koigu Mori.
Here are some samples:
The bottom two pair are size Medium +, knit with the 72 needle cylinder on the Verdun 47, while the rest of the pairs are size Medium, knit with the 54 needle cylinder on the Legare 400.
Koigu Mori is 50% Merino and 50% Mulberry Silk. It is definitely a ‘premium sock yarn’, retailing for ~CAN$25. per 50 grams (185 yards).
I was able to easily get a pair of Medium + from two skeins. There would not be enough for my size Large with two skeins though.
Mulberry silk is supposed to be a higher quality silk. I’m not an expert on this, but will attest that it is a fine feeling yarn!
Because silk is less elastic than wool, I loosened my tension 1/4 turn.
The kolours are koigulicious. Really, anyone who wears these socks should clamp Ott Lights to their knees, so that – when they are trucking around – folks can fully realize their beauty!
