The Joy of Socks City Socks


These may look innocent, but they are full of clever engineering to make them strong and hard wearing: reinforced back of leg, heal, sole and toes. A perfect city sock to line those stylish hand-made shoes.


2 balls (approx. 50 grams /175 metres per ball) of Angel Touch Alpaca in Dark Grey (col. A05), or your chosen colour.
Please note that your yarn requirement will be bigger if you are making a larger size. 2 balls of Angel Touch Alpaca are just about enough to complete a pair of socks in women’s medium size.
