Noro Silk Garden Sock is a lovely yarn- silk and wool, tweed, and lovely color variations. The only hesitation? It is just 1 ply (aka a single). Singles sometimes don't wear as well for knitted items that receive heavy wear. That didn't stop me from knitting a pair awhile back. So often you only see the pretty, stylized item right after it is knit. So I thought I would show you how well these socks held up.
