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.... www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/basic-ribbed-socks so you can knit your own pair of socks just like mine....  the pattern is super easy and works really well with this yarn !
