Autumn Harvest Socks

I call the colorway of these socks "Autumn Harvest"....changing leaves and ripening grapes. The yarn is "On Line Supersocke Neptun-Color"(#1680) The 459 yd, 100 gr ball easily allowed for these men's size 10 socks, with 10" legs....and plenty to spare. I think that this is the perfect combination of fibers for socks: 50% wool (for insulation and moisture wicking), 25% viscose (for silky smoothness), and 25% nylon (for strength and durability). They were lovely to knit and will be a pleasure to wear.

Very handsome socks, Eric. I just went online to Webs and found Online yarn, but not that color. Is there a place with a larger collection of colors?
