Adult Cowichan Knit Socks - Assorted Designs
Contemporary Cowichan items are knit from natural, hand spun, undyed sheep’s wool. This strong and stretchy yarn makes a sock that keeps its shape. The high lanolin content of the wool makes a water repellent, stain resistant sock that keeps its wearer warm and dry, absorbs body moisture, and ventilates body heat. These socks, if taken care of, should last for decades. They are passed down from generation to generation. They are thick enough to be used as slippers.
Knitter, Dale Edwards hand knit these wonderfully warm socks.
