The deep purple colour is really gorgeous. The yarn feels very luxurious on my feet, though it seems a bit itchy for a scarf (I have very sensitive skin). However you do need 2 skeins for a pair of socks which makes it very pricey. They really should sell it in 100g balls. The reinforcement yarn is great as it makes it feel more plushy and resistant. I haven't worn them yet so I don't know how resistant. There should be more reinforcement yarn, but if you're careful this can be used both for the toe and heel.
Lang produce a wide variety of yarns from silk, linen and cotton to exotic and fantasy yarns. Jawoll Sock Yarn is a classic woollen sock yarn that comes with a small roll of heel/toe strengthening yarn.
