I’ve got three bags of Fortissima Socka Mexiko – Cotton Stretch to try out. Here’s one ball from each bag:
41% Superwash Wool 39% Cotton 13% Nylon 7% Polyester (the stretch component)
I don’t knit a lot of stretch yarn. Patons Cotton Stretch is the only other that I recall off hand.
I’m a little blown away at how small the socks ‘appear’ when I use my usual pattern tensions and number of rows. Yet, they do indeed stretch out to fit appropriately.
Here’s how the first samples knit up for me:
The yardage is generous. I haven’t knit an XL pair yet, but I’m certain I can do so with one ball, judging by the amount I have left over from the large pair.
