This design is one of the 7 modern, minimalist sock patterns tailored to all natural sock yarns from SOCKS 2018.

Mohair is not only one of the cosiest fibres out there, it is also among the most durable ones. When paired
with Wensleydale like in this Whistlebare yarn it makes the perfect base to showcase swirling cables, rib and moss stitch. The Roots Socks are going to keep you incredibly warm - and they’re definitely going to hold up!
