Soft Angora Socks

On February 6, 2011, in Photo Gallery, by tina

Soft and warm angora socks. Have you ever tried on a pair? Merino wool and angora wool make a great combination for socks.  Merino wool is so warm  and soft. Angora wool is 8 times warmer then sheep wool – and  so very soft and fluffy. They are both know for whisking moisture away from the skin which keeps you warm and dry. Winter weather can be rough enough and trying to keep your feet warm when outdoors working or doing sports is important.   And the softness against the skin- what a great feeling when its bone chilling cold out.  Of course their will be some of the fluffy halo that angora is known for as they are worn.  Their are angora/merino/nylon socks now being produced in North America by the IAGARB co-op. Some of the members pool the wool they sheared from their own angora rabbits they raise  and have it sent to in a Michigan mill which turns them into  wonderfully soft and warm socks.  Its wonderful to be able to now find a product that is unique as this and  know where the fiber is coming and how they were made.
