Trusty Rusty Sock Pre OrderMainStreetKnits
Looking for real wool socks? Look no further then our hand cranked socks!
We crank our socks on our Earlbacher Circular Sock Machine in Ottawa.
These gorgeous rust and grey socks are made from 80% Superwashed Blue Faces Leicester and 20% nylon. BFL is a long wool which means it’s a more durable and slightly fuzzier wool but it’s still soft enough against the skin. The nylon adds a bit of extra durability to your socks. This colour can not be repeated.
This pair is a very average 8 inches in circumference and will comfortably stretch to feet up to about 9 inches around. This is just an example of how the colour can work up. It may work up slightly differently in different sizes.
Choose your size and we will finish these socks by hand to just the right size for you. By default the legs will be 6 inches tall but if you want them to be taller or shorter leave us a message at check out or email us and we will make sure we finish them just the way you want.
Our socks are machine washable but we always recommend drying flat to help extend the life of your socks and keep the colours vibrant.
To help extend the life of your socks I include a small amount of extra yarn for repairs. Learning to darn holes or weak points in your socks can give your socks a decade or more of wear! If you aren’t able to learn to repair your socks you can always come back to us and we can repair socks for a small fee.
