Crazy question coming up...

I was given a couple pairs of socks for Christmas called Marshmallow socks. The are a thick cottony type yarn that is extremely squishy.

Anyways... they are so comfy and warm, but I have no idea what kind of yarn this is.

Has anybody seen these type of socks? I can take a photo of them tonight if that will help!

Thanks!

The picture attached is not the ones that I have but they are similar!

It's a little hard to see, but maybe terrycloth? Chenille (like a bedspread)?

I've seen those socks and they are bunny soft! I think it's some kind of boucle yarn..maybe similar to this; Bernat Soft Boucle (http://www.joann.com/catalog.jhtml?CATID=82240&PRODID=97278). It's not quite the same though.. :thinking:

I have a couple pair like that, too, and the yarn looks like a very short, bulky eyelash. I think it's got to be made of some kind of acrylic/nylon/microfiber, since it's super-soft.

It's discontinued but you can get it at Smiley's yarns.
