Woodcutters abound in mythology, but nowhere more famously than in the tale of Little Red Riding Hood. Whether the Big Bad Wolf succeeds in luring Little Red Riding Hood to become his dinner or she eludes him, the Woodcutter comes and saves her (and generally her grand- mother, too). These hearty socks are inspired by tall, strong trees and the heroes who chop them down while waiting for young girls to need rescuing from wolves!
