Size 3 needles are sort of large for standard fingering weight sock yarns (unless you have a VERY tight gauge.) I'd be looking for DK weights if you want to stick with that needle size.

As for the fluffies, sure, you could, but durability is always a question when using non-wool/non-reinforced yarns for an item that will be, well, worn. I'm not sure how comfortable a fluffy yarn would be on the soles, either, but it depends what you mean by "fluffy". Maybe use the fluffy for instep and cuff?

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
