Ah..... Soft wool socks.....Thank you little Shetlands !
My 1st giveaway. 100% shetalnd wool sock yarn in natural oatmeal-ish grey. its a 4ply 100 grams with about 440 yards so plenty to knit a pair of ladies adult socks...guy type work socks will require 2 skeins. The yarn retails at $22.00 each.

Here's a pair of socks i knit with this yarn....
The socks are ribbed and very comfortable to wear all day long !
Pattern can be found here, designed by Kate Atherley and its free.... so you can knit your own pair of socks just like mine....  the pattern is super easy and works really well with this yarn !
