Recently I tried a new product from the Greenfibres socks range and I am really pleased with the quality and style.
The fine knee high socks are long length to the knee and the knit is fine enough to give a cosy fit under high dress boots, but are equally suitable for wellies. Although I also find the more robust knit of Greenfibres Walking Socks a great match for wellies. These versatile socks can also be worn under trousers, or fashionably with a shorter skirt and even to bed on those cold winter nights.
The fine knee high socks are a blend of 70% sheep wool, 28% cotton and 2% elastane to keep them up to the knee. They can be machine-washed, but I have found that hand washing with Sonett’s olive washing liquid for wool and silk does prolong the life of woolen socks and only takes minutes.
These wool/cotton knee high socks are great value at £11.90 a pair and a great discovery. They are soft to touch and available in black and navy blue. The fine knee socks have a high wool content so they are perfect for keeping your tootsies toasty.
