Brunswick Nylamb, if you can find it, grab it. Some say it is too soft but drop the needle size down, and it is lovely. Fine as Kroy, but the colours were wonderful. Have a Rubbermaid tub full of it, aging happily.

Nylamb is my all-time favorite sock yarn. Soft and elastic and it wears like iron. I have some Nylamb socks that are over 10 years old! I prefer to knit it on size 1 needles. Unfortunately it is no longer made but I wish they could come up with a similar yarn today
