Socks for summer? Why, yes, of course! After all, we want to make the most out of the beautiful weather outside which sometimes means layering up in the evening to spend that extra hour on the balcony or on a blanket in the park. Then, a pair of socks is just what we need. Knit in no-nylon, non-superwash Blacker Yarn Tamar the Meltemi Socks are not only perfect as an on-the-go project, but will also wear extremely well and last for many summers to come.
