So, an addendum to the Sock Yarn post, brought about by a discussion with Jim (the world’s greatest husband) about his favorite sock yarn, Malabrigo Sock:

Malabrigo Sock is certainly luscious and beautiful and silky and soft and is a perfect sock yarn EXCEPT – it has no reinforcing fiber. It’s 100% merino with no added nylon or silk. Having said that, it has almost all the other qualities of a good sock yarn. It has multiple plies and is smoothly and firmly twisted. Go ahead and use it, but be aware that it may develop holes faster than some other sock yarns. You can mitigate the consequences by adding a strand of wooly nylon or sock reinforcing thread, especially in the wear-prone areas of the sock.

I’ll address Noro sock yarn another day…
