We’ve gone self-striping mad here at Suffolk Socks HQ! This month we said hello to 3 new ranges of Hot Socks and they rock. The most difficult decision of all was deciding what range and shade to choose. I couldn't knit fast enough and had severe “cast-on-itis” so I chose to knit up one from each range.
Hot Socks Rubin available in 100gm balls, 7 shades and it’s Bamboo, Superwash wool content it’s a joy to knit. Hot Socks Diamond comes in 50gm skeins 75% Merino, 25% polyamide mix. And for those of us who like to wear sock all year round but sometimes find the wool content just a little too warm we have Hot socks Palma, this 41% Cotton, 39% wool, 13% Polyamide and 7%polyester make this an ideal yarn choice. You’ll be wearing your Hot Socks with your crocs all summer.
Enjoy the cheerful stripy and sensational shades.[caption id="attachment_802" align="alignnone" width="548"] Hot Socks Diamond[/caption]
