Sized for a 3 to 4 year old child whose feet measure 6½" (16.5 cm) from heel to tip of longest toe. (Fits approximate children's shoe sizes: US 7-11; European 22-23). Please measure feet to ensure proper fit.
These traditionally knit socks are knit by hand in-the-round with super fine weight yarn on US size 1 double-pointed needles (not on a machine) to obtain a gauge of 9 stitches x 11 rows per square inch. Reinforced heels provide extra durability. Stitches at the toe are grafted with kitchener stitch — a technique that forms an invisible join and leaves no rough edges inside the sock.
Long-wearing, four-ply yarn (imported from Turkey) is a blend of 50% washable wool, 25% bamboo, and 25% nylon. Machine washable and dryable, or hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry.
Color: "Thyme" - soft lime green, orange sherbet, and blue/rose/off white heather.
