Thirty inches long - the ultimate in warmth & luxury! You can pull these up over your knees or wear them scrunched down at your ankles, they are perfect to wear over your pants to keep the chill out of your boots. They have no elastic, so if you want them to stay up, be sure to add a pair of sock garters.
Additional Info: We only get these items in small batches & frequently run out long before we can get more... There are even more black coming in this fall.
We are aware of the concerns about angora sourcing and are actively avoiding angora socks that come from uncertain sources. We have worked with the folks at Orkney Angora since 2004. Until recently they did all of their own rabbit farming and although they now outsource, they keep a close eye on their supplier, even personally checking in to oversee the animals’ welfare to make sure they can provide cruelty-free socks and warmers. For more information, please view Orkney Angora's statement.
Fiber Content: 50% angora, 50% lambs wool.
We recommend hand washing these in cold or cool water, roll in a towel to remove excess moisture and reshape before drying flat.
Soft and silky, angora fiber has a fluffy halo and hollow fibers that create a fantastic thermal wool. Its super cozy properties can be beneficial for arthritis and other cold-induced aches and pains. Angora fiber can only be produced by Angora rabbits (Angora goats produce mohair) and grooming their fur is a necessary part of their health care, they can get hairballs just like cats! There are some great facts about angora wool on its page for the 2009 International Year of Natural Fibers.
Lovingly hand-dyed, some pairs of the Navy and Chocolate Brown may have slightly darker irregularities.
