- Druidstone Socks
Super warm and stretchy, these socks will keep your feet warm no matter the weather. The socks can be worked in plain or variegated yarn to give a variety of looks, suitable for your next day at the office or a walk along a stormy coastal footpath.
The wide rib pattern is softly cushioned and holds its shape well. The socks feature gentle shaping around the ankle and arch to hug the foot neatly. There are three different sizes to suit both men and women, and the socks can be worked with a turn-over cuff or with a contrast-coloured top edge.
