we all have a little bit of wild inside of us. some just have more than a little. if you find yourself changing during the full moons, perhaps you’re a distant relative of wagner the wehr-wolf, a german peasant who made a deal with the devil and was cursed to change forms every seven years for eternity (or at least until someone saved him from his cursed fate).

these socks won’t require you to sell your soul to the devil, just find the perfect sock yarn to mix well with the all-over texture created by tiny cables.

welcome to a season of penny dreadfuls, and socks inspired by the 19th century equivalent of pulp fiction.
