I have 4 skeins of Ultramerino 6 from Artyarns, 2 skeins each of 2 different colorways. Is this suitable for socks? I'm concerned since it has no nylon. Also, the Artyarn site doesn't say what its weight is, but since the suggested gauge is 5 1/2 stitches per inch on size 6 needles, it seems like light worsted. Trouble is, I can't find any patterns that call for light worsted. Does it have another name? Anybody know of a pattern?

That sounds more like DK to me, which you can use for socks!

I'm using Supermerino for socks right now, and that's 100% wool and worsted. Some of it has to do with what needle size you use and how thick you want your socks and how tight or loose you knit.
