All our Kozies are hand knit one at a time using quality yarns that will give you years of enjoyable wear. Many of our socks are knit with Merino wool fibers that are finer than regular wool and are naturally temperature regulating so your feet stay warm without getting that itchy sweaty feeling. Kozies are prewashed so there won't be any shrinkage.
Hand Knit Stockings
The advantages of hand knit stockings over store bought are that they are so much more comfortable, a treat for your feet, and they are made to last for years of enjoyment. Knit socks are warm, comfortable and unique as every pair is different.
And it doesn't matter how warm your winter boots are. If you're wearing cotton socks, your feet will perspire, and you will end up with cold, damp feet. Unlike cotton, wool is an great insulator. When it's cold out your feet will be toasty and warm in your hand knit wool blend socks.
Wool can absorb a high amount of moisture — much more than cotton. Wool can actually hold a third of its weight in moisture before it even starts to feel "wet." Wool keeps its insulating properties while wet, which is perfect for sweaty feet. Not only that, but wool also dries much more quickly than cotton or other synthetics.
Because of their physical nature, wool fibers naturally have anti-bacterial properties and are, therefore, odor resistant....which means your hand knit socks don't have to be washed every time you wear them. Indeed, socks can be worn multiple times before washing.
Handmade socks are just the nicest gift to give to a loved one or to treat yourself! Investing in hand made socks, especially super-soft merino wool socks, offers several unique advantages over cotton that make it the fabric of choice for all season wear.
