Absolutely, you can spin thin enough and create a 1 or 2 ply yarn for making socks. I recommend spinning a superwash wool if you want to wash in a machine and carding/combing about 10-25% silk, nylon or tencel into your wool to get a longer wearing yarn.

It does take practice though! Thinner yarns need more twist.
