good things about winter :: mongrel wooly socks

I do love wearing a good pair of cozy socks in winter. Don't you? And I finally got myself a few pairs of these amazing Tasmanian socks. Being a wearer of either Blunnies or Birkies, these socks are so comfortable with my footwear du jour. Much nicer than those old pilled polyester Explorers I usually get around in.

However, a little person has taken a fancy to the red pair, and I'm not sure if I'll ever get them back :: totally understandable.

There's something quite lovely about these Mongrels, they look like they're made with love. As all good socks should. Check out their website, they have quite a range. Rumour has it the name mongrel comes from their knitting machine. And yep, they even have a wooly sock blog you should visit, off you go.

  1. Ooohh they look great - especially with my gumboots that have been necessary at the moment in the paddock - will have to check them out at the market....The colour just makes you feel warmer!

  3. Hiya Michelle love those socks too & so did my late Mum. Mum loved them so much we buried her in them, can you believe that! She would laugh at me retelling this little fact & it still makes me smile remembering her & the things she was so passionate about-she really loved those mongrel socks!
