Many in my family tend to have sensitive skin and wool can be impossible to wear. I have been loathe to knit socks for them because it is a lot of work to be put away and never used. I did some research and found this excellent article others in the same boat might find useful:

You may want to add Plymouth Diversity. Just finished two pair of socks for DH. He loves them. The yarn is machine washable and dryable.
