Bernat's "Sox Solid" is made of 60% acrylic and 40% nylon. "Sox Solid" can be machine washed in cool temperatures and dried on low heat. This fingering weight, plied yarn is available in neutrals and brights and is designed for making socks.

The yarn has a dry acrylic hand, which I hope will soften up with washing. There were no snags or knots in the skeins, and if you can live with the limited palette, this is a great alternative for pricier yarns of the same gauge. Especially good for baby clothes because it can be machine washed and dried.

The yarn knitted into a nice pair of sox, using Sox, Crazy Hot. I had enlarged the pattern and used two skeins. The dye was in longer color sections in one skein than in the other. I have two socks the same color with a totally different design.

My family and I were in love with the SOX yarns. My son said that they were the best socks he ever had. I tried to find out why the line was cancelled, and were to get some leftover skeins of the stuff, but no luck. I still need a good acrylic sock yarn.

I bought a lot of this because the price was excellent (it actually didn't cost more than I would normally pay for a pair of socks!) and the colors were pretty. Unfortunately, the quality was very disappointing. This yarn splits, gets tangled up in itself, and makes for coarse, scratchy socks. Oh well; you get what you pay for, I guess.
