Both are shown wrapped 14 times around the one inch WPI tool.  You can open the picture in a new tab to see a larger version.

75% SW Corriedale 25% Nylon
3 ply, kind of fuzzy, fuzzes more after washing into a thicker cozy sock.
430 yards per 115 grams/4oz 
Heavy fingering weight, knit at about 7-8 stitches per inch, I like 64 stitches for socks.

75% SW Merino, 25% Nylon
4 ply, very smooth, stays smooth after washing.
460 yards per 100 grams
Light fingering weight, knit at about 9-10 stitches per inch, 72 stitches is a good sock number.
