Omana NZ 4ply Sock Yarn


Brand Naturally

I like to think that Sir Edmund Hilliary was wearing a pair of hand knitted woollen socks when he reached the summit of Mt Everest, maybe they would have been lovingly knitted by his Mum!

Us mere mortals may not be scaling Everest but a days tramping in one of our National Parks is surely achievable, and of course we’ll be wearing a pair of hand knitted socks. 

As an aside, if you’ve never worn a pair of knitted socks you are missing out on one of knitting’s most pleasurable experiences.
