I used this yarn on size 6 dpns to make some cabled socks. This was back when I used to put handknit socks in the dryer and I was surprised that they felted a bit since this was a superwash yarn. They also started to fuzz up seriously and after wearing them about 4 times, both socks developed holes in the soles.

I think this is good yarn but loosely spun. It would be better off for items other than socks.
