Keep your feet warm while lounging around at home in these unisex socks lovingly hand knitted by Palmo Dadi who is a part of The Color Caravan family in Himachal Pradesh. These woolen socks are knitted in German style which was introduced to Himachal by enthusiastic Moravian ladies in 1862. The Moravians were Christian Protestant Missionaries from Germany and their wives opened knitting schools in Lahaul and Kinnaur (H.P.) for local women, and taught them to knit woolen socks in German style. Socks are made in handspun indigenous Himalayan sheep wool. The intricate colorful pattern is knit in cashmilon. No two pairs of socks are the same, as each has its own unique character that makes it one of a kind. Hence the pattern details/color may slightly vary from the picture.
About The Color Caravan: The Color Caravan is a creative social venture that supports traditional craft communities, sustains indigenous craft skills, while upskilling and empowering rural women. The objective is to help the craftspeople regain their place in the economic mainstream and create opportunities to wow the world, with all the uniqueness that handmade truly has to offer.
Care: Hand wash separately in cold water using soap meant for woolens or with soapnut powder. Do not wring, machine wash or tumble dry. Dry flat in shade.
