Suitable sock yarn?

Is Lion Brand Microspun yarn suitable for socks? Lion’s site says it’s “100% micro-fiber acrylic”. The skein feels wonderful so I was thinking of making a pair of socks for a friend. They would just be for lounging around in rather than wearing in shoes.

Your thoughts appreciated.

Thank you.

Personally I don’t think that the microfiber would wear well on feet because it won’t allow the feet to ‘breathe’…LOL, in other words, it will probably cause feet to sweat & I don’t think that it wicks away moisture like wool and/or cotton :wink:

Thank you Rebecca. I’m sure you’re right. I was just hoping it would work because it’s so darn soft! Back to the drawing board.
