That seems odd to me, I always find Caron Simply Soft to be very soft. I've never used it for socks but find anything I croched with it to be slithery and the scarf OTN is very soft also.

The question is what size needles have you been using? For worsted weight yarn you'd need to use probably a 5 or so for them to be tight enough not to get holes too quickly. That depends on how you knit of course. If you're a tight knitter you may want to go up a size or two.
