It is so soft and luscious that it feels almost like silk sliding through my fingers as I knit, but it is a superwash sock yarn. Apparently it is made with a super high micron count and that's the secret to it's soft feel. I am making these socks for myself of course, but I think I may have to get another hank of this color and maybe Gourd too as this yarn is only around for a bit. Sad but true! I will of course make the pattern available through 2 Askew Designs in the near future. I am having a hard time putting this project down to sleep, but alas, I must get at least 2 hours a night. : Happy Knitting! Jeanne.
