Paton's True North (comes in DK and KW) does seem to suffer from pilling when made into socks. This surprises me since I thought it would be the other way around due to the higher wool content (50% acrylic, 50% wool). I can't make a blanket statement on this yarn though, since I've only made one pair of socks from it way back then, and they weren't exactly designed very well.  ;)  Or it may have been a bad lot of yarn.
