BENEFITS TO HEALTH
For those with poor circulation, Mohair socks are often a life saver. Their lightness and smoothness gently cosset and care for 'under the weather' feet.
Mohair is sheared from the Angora goat in long glamorous, ringlets twice a year. It is silky and lustrous and especially receptive to dye. Which makes it ideal for Mohair socks. Even after machine washing, socks retain their colour and shape from season to season.
Let me tell you about a farmer I know. Stephen Weighell lives on a moorland farm in North Yorkshire and, having heard about my amazing Mohair socks, decided to buy a pair 'to try out'. Two years later he was back to say he had worn my socks everyday but they were now getting a bit thin so he'd decided to invest in a new pair. He wasn't going to be throwing out the old ones though. He loved them so much he was keeping them for summer. Now that's what I call heroic.
