Lion Brand Sock-Ease Yarn is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great yarn for the price I really don't understand the negative reviews on this yarn. I think it's great. Considering the negative comments about it, I was kind of apprehensive as I was knitting it but I was totally blown away when it turned into a really nice soft but solid fabric after its first washing. I have no problem with any of my socks bagging or stretching out of shape as I knit them at a tighter gauge than recommended on the band as for a garment. The truth is that socks stretch with wear and if the tension isn't tight enough, any sock yarn will bag and stretch. I would wholeheartedly recommend this yarn for socks but be mindful of your gauge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Sock Yarn for the Price This is not my favorite sock yarn but it was all I could find locally when i wanted to try makiing socks. I've made 5 pairs now with it and i like that i can make a pair with just one skein. I agree with some of the other reviewers that it can be a little baggy. So i've started doing a K2, P1 rib for the entire leg section--not just the initial rib cuff and it has made a big difference. I would like to see some different color choices. I like self striping yarns but some of the color combinations seem a little strange to me. I'd really like some blue, green or purple based selections.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A surprisingly great yarn When I was young and learning how to knit, I felt that the most important thing was to be able to knit socks. So for years I knitted socks from my own (family raised sheep) wool. About 6 years ago I bought some Sock Ease on sale, and made myself and then my son-in-law a pair of socks. I have been wearing the socks and they fit well, no sagging and since I slip and knit stitch the heals and ball of the foot, the socks have not had the usual ware that involves darning. My only criticism is that the the variegated coloring would be different, or more like a split font with long blending from one color to another, but I have still been able to use the multi colored yarns in strand knitting. I am attaching a most recent photo of a pair of socks made from circus peanuts Sock Ease yarn.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Almost the worst sock yarn you can buy With the Mary Maxim Twinkle Toes yarn being by far the worst quality sock yarn out there, Sock Ease is only slightly better than that, and it's price is too high. This stuff is really poor quality wool, rough and scratchy, fraying, and so splitty and twisty, and it doesn't soften with washing. It also is not colorfast (for brighter colors). It stretches some, but has very little regain memory, and socks knit with it wear very poorly. Knit with size 2US needles results in a very sloppy fabric, not at all good for socks. Look elsewhere...there's better out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good yarn for the price Love that both socks can be made with one skein! It's not soft till you wash it, but I don't get why people think that's a huge deal. Also, use common sense, if the pair you made falls down, you probably made the pattern a bit too big. I have large feet and calves and have never had a problem with them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not My Favorite I have used Lion Brand Magic Stripes and I was hoping that Sock-Ease would be just as good. Sock-Ease is thinner and the pair of socks I knitted got loose and baggy on me the first time I wore them! I still have more Sock-Ease, but I don't know if I will use it. I will need to drop down to a US size 1 needle to make socks with it so they won't bag. I lked Magic Stripes much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its Okay I'm in agreement that this yarn feels scratchy while knitting but it does soften up some after washing/drying. I noticed that the socks I made "bagged" out upon wearing. I would still buy this yarn again (not as a first choice though) but would use a sz00 needle rather than a sz1. I believe that would help with the elasticity. Otherwise, the colors choices available aren't bad.
