Good advice. My first pair for my hubby was acrylic, lasted about 10 wearings.MommaBlue said:I am fairly new to knitting and have made a couple pairs of socks.
My understanding is that socks need to have nylon in them to help them last longer. Also because acrylic is not a natural fibre it will make yours hubby's feet sweat, they will not be able to breathe.
But I am sure some of the wonderful and smart KP'ers will have more answers for you.
Have a great day and good luck with the socks. They are addictive once you start
Same experience!!!! Wool Ease will work but wool with nylon is SO much better.Soandsew4 said:Good advice. My first pair for my hubby was acrylic, lasted about 10 wearings.
