A funky pair of knee high socks to keep your feet toasty and your spirits cheery during the Autumn/Winter months.
New prints for Winter 2017, lambswool knee high socks from London designer, Catherine Tough. Whether for indoor lounging or outdoor striding, these socks are cosy, warm and soft and will add a dash of colour to a cold Winters day.
They are handspun from high quality Italian lambswool to keep your feet insulated naturally whilst allowing them to breath.
I wore mine at least 50% of the time last Winter. You can give as gifts, but even better to keep for yourself. :-)
One size fits all (covers UK 5-7/ 38-40 EU)
- Mid grey base with navy blue pattern - Orange rib, heel & toe - Made by a family-run factory in Portugal - 80% lambswool / 20% nylon polyamide for added durability, comfort and fit - Heel to top of the rib 33cms, come up to just-below the knee - Elasticated top for gentle hold
Wash Care:Machine wash on a gentle wool cycle, no higher than 30°C or hand wash. Select a slower spin. Use a wool care detergent and add a drop of fabric conditioner for extra softness.
Ethics/Welfare All the yarn used in production is ethically sourced from high-quality spinners with animal welfare policies in place.
The fleece used in manufacturing the yarns can be traced back to Australia and South America from non-mulesed sources (very nasty practice of removing the skin around the sheep's bottom to prevent flystrike, which is associated with the yarn used in high volume, low-cost garments)
The spinners are members of Wool Mark who have signed up to the RSPCA best practice in Support of the International Wool Textile Organisation Working Document of Animal Welfare and 5 Freedoms
Freedom from Hunger & Thirst
Freedom from discomfort
Freedom from pain.
Freedom from injury
Freedom from disease
Catherine Tough has worked with the same sock factory in Portugal for over ten years and visited them on many occasions, the staff are treated fairly, and health and safety policies are in place.
