This has got to be my favorite sock yarn I've used so far. The colors are wonderful, soft heathers and bright solids, and fun twists. It knits beautifully without splitting and is soft on the hands. I have washed my Regia socks both by hand (in Eucalan) and by machine and both results were perfect. I have noticed some slight pilling on the heel but other than that, I would highly recommend it. Only problem there seems to be is finding a store that carries it. I used a size USA 2 Crystal Palace needles and it was a joy to knit.
