A textured pair of socks that will bring interest to those subtle colours and speckles. These socks are designed with a contrasting cuff, heel, and toe in mind. The short row heel makes the heel look neat and tidy when working with a contrasting colour. The easily remembered pattern means that these socks are the perfect travelling project.
