Non-pilling yarn for socks? (not that fine stuff)
I finished my first pair of socks a while back, and really like them. The wool keeps my feet warm despite having sweaty feet.

My problem is the yarn (Patons classic wool) pilled horribly after two wearings. It wasn't the washing, it was the abrasion of being inside slippers because I noticed new fuzzies after wearing them for a few hours.

Can someone suggest a wool worsted that won't pill so bad, and close in price range? I like making my own socks, but there's no point if yarn costs more than buying store socks. I'm interested in utility here, not large color selection or if it self-stripes or not.
