Icelandic Angora Socks
These socks are made from a blend of Angora rabbit fir (20%), lambswool (50%), polyamid (25%) and lycra 5%. Let me just say they are incredible. Being someone who appreciates socks especially ones that are well constructed and sustainable I am amazed by these socks. Warm and fuzzy, soft and hold their shape. I picked up a pair in Iceland and they have seen quite a fair amount of use here in the winter. The socks are Varma made by Glofi in Iceland. They are available through on the internet through Canada here.
Growing up I was aware through friends of people raising Angora Rabbits and making sweaters out of their fur but had actually never seen a product made from Angora so I was thrilled. The Angora is very very soft and really adds a nice element to the socks. They are similar to some of the Smartwool socks I have but the added Angora makes them even softer. I’d highly recommend them.
