Hi there. I just knit a test sock out of Knit Picks Palette (I’m not partial to nylon or other synthetics when I can avoid them). After a day of wear I can see some slight felting around the ball and heel of the foot. On one hand is seems obvious that this would happen, on the other it seems unfortunate. Either way, I’m not sure it matters… perhaps it will protect against holes! Still, I find myself a bit dismayed.
From what I understand, tightening up my gauge and making the sock fit tighter, all in an effort to reduce movement of fiber, can help. But, either way, is this mild felting after one wear to be expected?
