These socks were inspired by the Prada 2010 fall collection. The difference is that Mine has toes... Cause I like wearing boots and thought that it was silly to have to wear two pairs of socks. The Prada ones do not have toes....

Good for both men and women. - (Well, maybe not in this colour :-) ) Wear over the knee or fold the top over to make generous knee high socks. Great for wearing on a cold winter's night.

I just love the 70's style and this is my homage to that era.

Knitted in Soft Lilac with powder pink accents at the cuffs. The yarn is a wool/polyamide mix. There is Lycra in the cuff so it will stay up better.

The leg is long (100 cm form top to heel) and should sit just over the knee when sized correctly. The socks are long enough for a generous turn over, or wear without the turn over and scrunched up at the bottom. Worn below the knee it will be a very generous slouch sock. They stretch width ways so will loose some length. ( About a third as a guestimate).

There is elastic in the cuff, so they will stay up, but because the rest does not have elastic, they are great for people that suffer with circulatory problems. I have tried some lycra in the top to help keep the socks up, but here is a sexy way to wear them:

The sassy garter is not included in this offer, but you can get on Etsy. Follow this link....

They will feel crisp on arrival because they are fresh of the 'press' and have not been washed. Wash with shampoo and rinse in hair conditioner - then spin dry and leave to dry. Reshape while wet, by pulling smartly in opposite directions. This is not my usual yarn, so I am a bit weary to suggest using the washing machine, but on a wool/delicate cycle and cold water you should be all right. AVOID ANY HEAT - i.e. water or tumble dryer - As I suspect it would felt the yarn.

But fear not! The value of wearing wool surpasses the effort of looking after it.

These socks are hand knitted on my 1900's sock machine - Just like they did in the 1St World War. They should be repaired and not thrown out at the first sign of wear and tear... PS I will do free repairs....
