Shepherdess

Design Clarisabeth López Rodríguez
Yarn Tukuwool

Wonderfully woolly and plump, Shepherdess is a cosy pair of winter hiking socks that are ideal for novice sock makers. Double crochet makes the well trodden toe and heel areas nice and sturdy, and the touch of nylon in Tukuwool’s Sock yarn lends extra strength.
