It's soft and should feel just wonderful on the foot. The metallic isn't harsh at all. The colors don't pattern or pool. My sock is about half done – and I'm looking forward to wearing these!
Details: I'm using size 2's and 64 stitches – I always do. If you knit loosely, use a smaller needle size.
While this yarn is designed for socks, it is soft enough to be an excellent choice for hats, mittens and scarves. Fun stuff!
