Size:23cm foot / 30cm leg

Delicate dove blue grey accents with the rest of the sock knitted in oatmeal wool and dove blue acrylic. The colour blends in an organic fashion creating 'blocks' of colour that melt together. Very stunning and subdued colour.

All my socks are hand cranked on a original 1900’s sock machine – just like granny's granny did in the first world war!

There is no elastic in the cuff or sock so is ideal for people that suffer with swollen ankles, diabetics or if you don't like clingy socks. They stretch quite a bit so are comfortable regardless of the size of the foot. They can also be custom made to meet your needs, so contact me...

It washes well on a wool cycle and gets more fluffy with use. DO NOT TUMBLE DRY. For best results, hand wash with hair shampoo and rinse in hair conditioner. Nuts! I know, but the results are well worth it!

My workshop is in a community in Milton Keynes. When not knitting socks I work with people with
disability.

The only electricity used making the socks is the occasional midnight oil and frequent loud music, so they leave a very small carbon footprint. They do not come with unnecessary packaging/labels that just get thrown away. Washing and care instructions are send via e-mail!

Did I mention that they last, and last and last? THE PLANET MUST LIKE THAT!

Wool is an ideal everyday fibre: Hardwearing, moisture wicking and comfortable. These socks are designed for hiking, boots and general wear. They come to mid calf, have extra padding over the top of the foot and a snug fitting heel.

Sizing Guidelines:
Sizing is always a bit of a issue and then I would also make it easy to find the right size right away.... SOO....

I have listed the socks in foot sized rather than types of socks. Feel free to contact me if you see a pair that is not in your size, I will be happy to see if I can make one for you. Please just keep in mind that often the socks are OAAK and you might get a similar but never the same socks - hell, it is difficult enough to make a matching pair!

Here is how the sizing works:
Measure form your inside elbow to the fold of your wrist. The rule is that this is the length of your foot.... then look in the shop section that is right for you. I will also list the shoe sizes to make sure that you feel comfortable with the sizes. Remember that a sock that is too small will slide forward and a large sock will bunch up and move around. Unlike factory made socks, hand knitted socks should fit snug but not with a stretch - so DON'T be tempted to choose a smaller sized sock. If e.g. your foot is 25cm long you can choose either a 24, 25 or 26cm sock - but the 25cm will be the best fit.

Most of the socks are just available as a singular design, as the yarns are bought as limited specials. But this too can change soon.... happy shopping and remember:

PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR ANY SOCKS THAT YOU WANT!
