Salted Wool Walking Socks by Laura's Loom
These terrific cushioned walking socks have proved to be very popular with everyone who has purchased a pair - from gentle walkers to those who like to cross glaciers on skis, canoe down rivers, and spend all day in wellies working on farms and fishing boats. Our socks are knitted in England from pure British wools sourced from Tarbet on Loch Nevis, Windermere in Cumbria and Sedbergh in the Yorkshire Dales. We have dubbed the yarn we create 'Salted Wool' in honour of the wool's journey from sheep to finished product.
The yarn used in the socks is 80% 'salted wool' and 20% nylon which adds stretch and strength and allows us to create a cushioned sole along with a short ribbed leg. Toes are hand-linked to provide a smooth join and avoid blisters.There are no dyes added and the socks are completely machine washable on a cold wool cycle. If you put them in a tumble dryer they will shrink and go hard.....so don't do it!!Available in three adult sizes: 4-7, 8-10 and 11-13.
