Handmade, supercosy, house socks with a reinforced toe and heel.
50% Iona Wool, 25% Nylon, 25% Mohair.
On Iona we generally kick off our shoes at the front door and slide around our houses in our socks, so we've been wanting to make a proper, rugged sock with Iona Wool for ages. The first step was to create a suitable yarn which meant adding some nylon and mohair to the spin for added durability and comfort. Next we had to find a suitable partner who could make the sock we wanted. We were lucky to hear about a place in Finland that was still making traditional Finnish house socks on century old British machines, and after a short conversation we knew we’d found a perfect partner.
