Simply soft is a light worsted, but still twice as heavy as fingering/sock/4 ply yarn. Most patterns for worsted use size 6s and there's several patterns for worsted, but know that these will be much thicker than regular wear in the shoes socks and are better suited for slippers or boot socks. So if the request is thinking of socks for wearing inside shoes, you may have to get thinner sock yarn.
