Oh, dear!

If you're going to use animal fiber for socks, superwash is the only kind to use. We live in a really wet area and anything wool felts when you wear it, which is okay for big thick boot socks but not so when you knit something lacy or cabled. There's a lot of fun sock yarn around that won't shrink up.
