i know a few of you have ordered this yarn and i wanted to ask you: how soft is it? i want to make a lace project out of a nice, soft fingering weight yarn and i'm having trouble finding one i like. most of the solid-color sock yarns i've found are superwash wool and they're kinda scratchy and weird. i figured since palette isn't superwash it might feel ok. so how does this one measure up? any info would be appreciated. ^_^
edit: in a similar vein, how is their sock essentials yarn? soft? scratchy? i just assumed it was scratchy because it was superwash, but maybe not... any thoughts?
