I've made 100% wool socks in worsted for hanging around the house socks. I have a pair of slippers that are a liiiiitle too big so I wear the socks with those slippers so the socks don't wear out so fast. (I haven't tried dbl stranding the heel. Do you need different size needles too? ) Just use a yarn that's not too delicate, unless you're just going to wear them in bed (which I have done too. Oh my toes feel so yummy!!!) I've also done worsted weight superwash and it holds up a little longer. Whatever you decide I say go for it. Nothing better than warm yummy socks
