New sock yarn for those who can't wear wool!
I haven't tried this, yet, but for those of us who find any wool in sock yarn to be just too itchy for our feet, this looks great!:

Neato. SWTC also has a bunch of nonwool yarns, including Tofutsies sock yarn.

Oh sorry, my mistake; I thought it didn't have wool in it.

According to Ravelry the 2 comments say it's splitty and it had a lot of "split/joins" which maybe she means knots? They did say it was soft though. Two comments don't mean much though. It's a pretty yarn.
