How well does bamboo hold up as sock yarn?

Is there a non-wool blend of bamboo sock available?

How cool (temperature) is it for warm weather?

Any other comments about bamboo yarn in general?

Thank you for your help and comments in advance.
Here are 3 non-wool bamboo blends in fingering weight:

It's wonderfully soft, a little splittly to work with until you get used to it, washes well, but I'm not sure how hard wearing-- haven't had them long enough to tell!
