Autumn 2016 Update
This knitwear supplier is being discontinued and thus so are these socks, very sadly. There are no medium nor large (save for one pair of large natural) left. There are small and extra large left.
There is nothing quite like these socks. Not only are they warm, soft and practical possum-merino, but there is also a generous cushion of the same wool inside the bottom of the sock, thus giving the ultimate insulation in walking or wellington boots. Also seen masquerading as slippers.
These socks are 40% possum fibre which perfectly partners the 50% merino wool (and 10% nylon for strength). This wool is lightweight, instantly warming but not overheating, and makes GREAT socks!
Very interestingly the possum-merino-nylon mix can be happily laundered in the washing machine at 30 degrees (wool wash) BUT as possum is odour-eating and merino moisture-wicking the socks do not need washing so often (truly!). Calf length.
Available in three colours and four (unisex) sizes. Main picture is the denim colour.
