These luxurious boot socks are hand-cranked and hand finished in Australia. The socks are modelled on the original Creelman Brothers 'Standard Olde Tyme Sock' (circa 1890)s and have been modified to suit contemporary conditions. These long-lasting 3/1 to 1/1 ribbed socks are made from high quality 75% Sock Wool / 25% Nylon + a high quality very fine lycra. This means that you can wash them in the washing machine along with your colours and they will last for up to two years. Your socks will be hand cranked on a Creelman Brothers "Money Maker" circular sock machine (circa 1890) and hand finished with blanket stitched toes.
All of the socks have been tested to last up to two years with regular wear and washing. These socks come with a small amount of excess yarn, a darning needle and a darning mushroom for any minor repairs over the years. You can learn how to darn here.
