for socks? I want to make some Dobby Socks but i can't use wool or wool blends (i'm highly allergic, as is the friend that they're intended for)

I haven't knit enough socks yet to help, but you'll get lots of responses. I did a forum search and found a bunch of posts that have socks and sock yarn discussion for you to start with.

EDIT to add... I looked up "cotton sock yarn" on google a bunch of hits. Here's a blog that has info for someone allergic to sock yarn, too.
