I'm Alan and I'm a man who likes to knit and sometimes I even knit in public. So this is fingering weight it's pretty thin it almost looks like threadlike thread that you would use but when it's all put together it makes some pretty nice socks. I've also made small hats and scarves and done some lace work too. This would work really nice with a repeating lace stitch if I made a pair of socks out of this. These would be the kind that I make for my wife or my daughter for Christmas that I give to them because they're really kind of colorful and they're fun. Something you would wear from time to time. One thing about silk I think because I have not done a lot of work with it but I'm learning, is that with wool, a pair of wool socks they're great for the winter but it's not something you want to wear for the summer. Whereas something like silk still has even though, it doesn't have a lot of the root stretch, when it's made like wool does it's still it's more comfortable to wear like if you were going out to a party or something and you wanted to wear something special.
