This yarn was recommended to me at a yarn store for socks. I made several pairs because it came in good sock colors and was reasonably priced. Unfortunately even knitted with smaller size 3 or 4 needles the socks developed holes too quickly. I do walk barefoot all the time and am hard on my socks though. Washes up quite nicely.
