Is there a machine washable, machine dryable, 100% wool out there in fingering weight for socks?

I found this (http://www.cherryyarn.com/supersock.html) yarn from Cherry Tree Hill, but I've never tried it. It comes in pretty colors!

I've only done a couple pairs of socks, but the yarn I really like is Gems Opal. Very soft, washable, merino wool. I bought mine at my LYS, but the links below give you an idea of what it is like.

Henry's Attic Kona is very soft and 100% Merino. It comes in natural though, so it's dyeable.
