Loved knitting it, and also wearing the socks. It seems just a tad heavier than sock weight, but not as heavy as sport. There is some pilling, and I just removed a couple of largish "hairballs" from inside the socks. That said, I would definitely use this yarn again, even if I hadn't already bought some to make socks for my DH! So far I've only seen the red-plum-blue colorway [my socks] and autumn shades brown-russet-dk brown, but I believe there are also solids.
