These Olallie legwarmers are what you’ll reach for when you need a bit of warmth on a crisp, cool morning out on the trail or while watching a sunset at the end of the day at your campsite. Versatile and cozy, we knit ours using Fancy Tiger’s Heirloom Romney, 100% American Romney wool. Offered in a short and a long version, you will want to knit more than one pair.
