The cables in these socks remind me of windswept, winding roads- perfect for an afternoon of “leaf-peeping” in the countryside. The alpaca content in the Felted Tweed yarn softens the look of the cables and seed stitch without compromising stitch definition or texture. The legs are tapered along the sides in the seed-stitch panels so that the cable panel remains intact. The result is a streamlined look with a perfect fit!
