Thrummed Socks

Thrumming, knitting in wisps of sheeps fleece into all manner if items, has been practised in Canada’s Newfoundland and Labrador for about 200 years. If you lived there, you’d understand. The fleece lining makes these socks extra warm and felts slightly with wear and washing. Extremely good defence against the cold and damp of the North Atlantic. This modern incarnation is a good variation of a very traditional sock.
