I knit these up using a Jacob/mohair blend as a trial pair of socks before spinning Lolly's fleece. As it turns out they seemed too heavy for most warm blooded sock wearer's but just right for me! (feel free to draw your own conclusions). So this is my new pair of handspun wool(from my own girls)/mo socks ready for those frosty days ahead. I'm almost looking forward to winter. They are sooo comfy. They spun at 11 wraps per inch. I decided to spin Lolly's fleece at about 13 wraps per inch for a lighter sock.... now have to tweak the stitch count to match.
