Schoppel Admiral 6ply
Schoppel Wolle Admiral 6ply is an undersung hero of the sock yarn world! It comes in a 150g ball, making it ideal for a pair of socks for even larger feet, and as a slightly thicker yarn, it knits up super-quickly. Bang out a pair of socks in no time with Admiral 6ply!
This is the recommended yarn for Jim's Hedera Helix socks (from A Year of Techniques), as well as Wendy D. Johnson's Alcedo socks (from Boost Your Knitting). Both projects require 1 x 150g ball of Admiral 6ply.
