We started with the sheep for these socks. All year long we care for the sheep and let the wool grow. Our sheep get one haircut per year. We sent the raw fleece from our Polypay sheep to a woolen mill here in Michigan, where they cleaned it, carded it, blended it with nylon and spun it into DK weight yarn (70% wool\/30% nylon).
We then handpainted the yarn with colorfast acid dyes in bark brown and evergreen and very dark navy. This is the only skein of yarn we dyed in this manner. Then Mike used the yarn to knit this pair of one of a kind wool socks on our ancient circular sock knitting machine (actual age unknown).
These socks would fit a man's shoe size 11-13. The bottom of each sock measures approximately 10.75" at rest. The top of each sock features a comfortable doubled hem with mock ribbing on the shaft. Each shaft measures approximately 12". This pair of socks is sure to be warm for those cold winter days!
Handwashing or machine washing on gentle cycle is suggested. Lay flat to dry.
