Fraternal Twins

56 stitches - knit on size 2 circulars
REGIA yarn (unknown color)
75% superwash new wool - 25% polyamid
Intentional fraternal-twin socks started in Denver and finished at home. I loved working with this yarn - nice even stitches and no splitting. I hope it wears and launders as well as it knit. 

Manufactured in Italy and Germany, REGIA is marketed in the US by Coats Crafts. I was surprised to find a guarantee on the label: 
the durability of REGIA is 4-fold
• dimensionally stable
• hard-wearing
• machine washable up to 40 degrees C, no felting
• dryer proof with 10 years REGIA - Garantie

Have you noticed a guarantee on any yarn label(s) in your stash?

The original sock yarn stash is decreasing slowly; however, yarn for two pairs of socks jumped into my shopping cart while I was in Denver. Sigh!

  4. Great socks. I love Regia yarn. I've been laughing as I thought at first glance at your last pair and this one that you'd discovered a new cuff! You have cool red sock blockers. LOL We just got back, and I'm trying to catch up on blogs. Have a great day. My stash doesn't seem to get smaller either.....

  6. A guarantee?! Wow. I have some Regia in my stash, but evidently, I didn't look closely enough at the label.

  12. Beautiful socks. I love that sock yarn, although I've never noticed the guarantee. And for the record, I buy about 2 hanks of sock yarn for every 4 I knit up. :) g
