Lovikka Socks

Lovikka Socks

Yarn: Svarta Fåret Lovikka, 100% wool.
Pattern: my own design.

Lovikka wool socks are wildly underappreciated; super warm and all kinds of wonderful :) These ones are very heavy/thick and napped* on the inside, amazingly soft and gorgeously fuzzy – just like walking on clouds! I’m too weak at the moment to do the napping myself, but I’ll ask somebody to help me because I’d love to have them napped on the outside too.

(Is “nap” the correct term in English? It’s “rugga”  in Swedish; as in plunging them in warm soapy water and then brushing them with a stiff brush until the surface becomes all fluffy and raised.)
