I am reposting this cause I can't find the original...so if it is hiding somewhere this may appear twice.....My pattern calls for super fine weight yarn. Any yarn names I should consider?? I prefer to go to the lys with somthhing in mind. Thanks, tille

I think that super fine sock yarn is generally called 'fingering weight'. There are lots of brands and I'm sure your yarn store would be happy to point you in the right direction. I don't know about most LYS's, but mine has one area where all sock yarns are kept.

Lorna's Laces, Socks that Rock, Opal, Cherry Hill, and Art Yarns are a few of my favorite sock yarn vendors.

I'm jumping in on this question too. Some yarns feel more durable than others.

Does anyone know (from experience and much wear) which sock yarns are more or less durable than others?

I'd like to know which ones to steer away from.

thanks to both of you for your suggestions.
