Nothing feels as nice on our feet as handknit socks! Make them from alpaca and merino and you definitely have happy feet. VermontKnitBoy, Chris made these socks for me. He assured me that the yarn that I sent him is not sock yarn because it is loosely spun and that I shouldn't advertise it as a sock yarn. I do sell this yarn in my shop. But let me tell you, Chris, I love the way these feel. I live in my Birkys so you know they will get lots of wear.
