I've used this yarn to knit loop scarves, some as gifts - knit with large needles, this creates the warmest scarf imaginable. The colors and sheen are beautiful, too. It does shed some fuzz but that's a minor thing.
I'm usually barefoot in my house, and in the dry climate I inhabit northern Arizona, the feet have to have something so they don't rasp! This Soak product is one of the best I've found.Their handwash soap is also wonderful.
This yarn has fabulous colors and a good weight for many projects beyond socks. I've used it for fingerless gloves, leggings and small bags the bags have zippers and lining- I'm so taken by the colors that I'm finding other things to do with it after many pairs of socks. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that every ball seems to have a break in the yarn that causes a sudden color change.
