Nice variety of colors in these 2 balls of very fine 100% virgin merino wool yarn. 50g, 170 yards, in colors of blue, light blue, gray, white and black. 2 smaller balls are a lighter shade of the 3 colors. Single ball is the same color variety but the colors are darker. Not quite enough yarn for a complete pair of socks in either all unless you knit from one ball and then the other to mix the shades. But enough in 1 ball to knit the toe and heel of a pair of blue or white or black socks. And maybe enough to put stripes in the cuffs.
