Are there any reasons to buy sock yarnwith a lifetime warranty?

The recommended warranty period depends on how often you use your sock yarn, how expensive is it, what company made it, and many other factors. Manufacturers sell their most expensive products with a lifetime warranty, while the least expensive sock yarnmight be not guaranteed at all. We think that the best warranty period for a good sock yarn is five years.
