Description

These socks are made with wool and include acrylic yarns for the patterns and designs. This is a traditional design that I learned while on a trip to the Himalayas. There are several tribes in the North Indian state of Himachal Pradesh and in and around the town of Kedarpura – a temple town (the famous Kedarnath Temple is situated there) in the Indian Himalayas, who use this style. Obviously these woolens are popular because of the high altitude and cold!
