My 75/25 base is definitely the most popular blend among most sock knitters. It has a lovely stitch definition as well as the durability that hand knit socks need to have. this yarn is also a 4ply which adds to its strength. The merino used in milling this yarn is very soft because of its 21.5 micron count. It's such a lovely blend and I have personally knit many socks with it.
