Hiisi is made of long combed wool fibers so it feels smooth to hand. It is 5-ply and has a very tight twist, so it even though it is 100% wool it is durable also in socks (unlike other Riihivilla's 100% wool). Hiisi is also perfect for sweaters, hats or mittens with only one color. Cables show up great when knitted with Hiisi. Even thought is under sockyarns, it is great all-purpose yarn for any project which needs thick yarn. One skein is enough for small women's socks, but for bigger socks or for men's socks you would need two skeins.
