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....

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

The photos do not do the colour justice....

It is a dark olive green trimmed with black. Knitted in a super wash wool.

The leg is long (75 cm form top to heel) and should sit just over the knee when sized correctly. They stretch width ways so will loose some length. ( About a third as a guesstimate).

There is no elastic in the cuff, so 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:

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....

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.
