Typically, lace socks are worked with the thinnest of sock yarns and tend to be delicate and fragile, creating heartbreak
when holes develop after one wearing. These socks are different. They’re worked in a sturdier sock yarn, with a more solid leg for warmth. The reinforced heel adds warmth and durability, yet the sock still looks light and delicate with its lace cuff and pattern trickling down the toes. Ideal for wearing with open toe shoes even if it’s chilly.
