Helsingin villasukkatehdas woollen socks
If you never had the privilege of using proper grandma made woollen socks, here's the next best thing: ye olde thick woollen socks made in Finland in a very traditional workshop!
Complete with toe and heel reinforcement, made of 70% wool and 30% polyamide. The polyamide content is not a cost saving measure, but a very practical way to increase the life span of the socks drastically. These are very hard wearing, and every finished sock is individually inspected at the factory.
The manufacturer recommends washing by hand, but a 30 degrees Celsius spin in the washing machine is OK too.
Pro tip: you'll get the most out of thick woollen socks by wearing a lighter woollen sock under them.
Available in three sizes: 37-39, 40-42 and 43-45. Sized according to European shoe sizes, with corresponding common S, M, L etc. sizes in brackets. See the chart below for further reference:

Made in Finland by Helsingin Villasukkatehdas
Yes, these are made right here some 20 km from our store in a very traditional small sock factory, with British machines dating back to the 1920's (but made to work with electricity in the 50's, blasphemy!). These are so Finnish made we almost can't believe it ourselves! Here's the home page, if you don't know the language, look at the pictures.
