I knit my Dad a pair of socks for Christmas with this. (As well as a pair of slippers for my Grandpa.) They both turned out wonderfully soft and very comfortable. Its a good thing their feet are bigger than mine, or I would have been tempted to keep them both for myself. :) I have machine washed and dried them. They soften nicely and even fluff up a bit. I don't know anything about how they will wear over time, but this was a wonderful yarn to knit with. I plan to make myself a pair of socks with this yarn. However, I think I will go down to a size 5 or 6 needle to get 6 sts to the inch--resulting in firmer fabric.
