Indulgence Cashmere! - unbelievably soft!!
This newest color pak of Indulgence sock yarn is70% extrafine merino, 25% polyamide and 5% cashmere.
It knits at a slightly heavier gauge than the typical sock yarn - so it's great if you're just starting out and want your sock to go a little quicker - yet is still thin enough to fit into a shoe. (If you want a boot weight sock yarn, check out Raggen).
This yarn is Rrecommended at 5.5-6 sts/inch on a US 3-4 needle. While it might be ok at 5.5 sts/inch if you are knitting a baby sweater (and 1 skein will do a great baby sweater!), for a sock, you'll want to keep it at a tighter 6 or 6.5 st/inch gauge.
This is the softest line of sock yarn I've seen.
