I dearly love spinning, but sometimes in the winter, it’s a challenge - I can’t wear socks or my feet slip on the treadles, but it’s too cold to go without. These socks are short, but very warm, and have leather attached to the bottoms to prevent slipping. They would be too thick (and probably too warm) to wear with shoes, and the leather on the bottom rules that out anyway. They’re also a good way of using up smallish amounts of handspun yarns - especially luxury yarns, because the socks won’t be getting a whole lot of abrasion.

For those of you without handspun yarn, KnitPicks Gloss is comparable in weight.
