Hugni

Simple colourwork boot socks
I've spent my whole life living in old buildings with draughty wooden floors — there can never be enough thick woolly socks in the wintertime. Worked in a sturdy wool nylon blend in an unusually heavy weight for a sock yarn Hugni will keep your toes warm and should hold up well to be even if you spend as much time sliding down the hallway as I did as a small child.
