  1. Catherine Burns

    Spinning Ilse de France roving. Like butter thro your fingers. It spins to a DK weight because the fibre is so excellent. A grey roving the same. Don't hesitate, if you are an experienced spinner, the specialty breed roving is a dream.

Our Prairie Wool Sock Guide

When choosing socks, the Original Wool Socks are the warmest, the White Wool Mohair Socks are the softest, and the Hard Workin' Wool/Nylon Socks are the most durable.


Our sock sizes correspond to men's shoe sizes or are slightly smaller. If you like your socks loose, you may want to pick the next size up. Most men tend to fit into sizes 10-12 or 13-15. Most women tend to fit into sizes 4-6 or 7-9. If your foot size is right on the upper border of a size range, we would recommend getting the next size up. This makes them a bit more forgiving when it comes to washing.
