3 quick on the walking socks
"The walking socks, the walking sock or the house sock, call it what you want, because it deserves everything it can get. This socks is simply the socks. No matter what you're looking for out of warmth or comfort to your feet, this socks is there to solve your need for well-being."
Leopold von Broich
What kind of socks is the walking socks?
Scratching or not scratching?
No,I wouldn't say the walking socks made of mohair scratches.
Ever since I can remember, I've liked this walking socks as it's called. I was still a kid the first time I got this socks on, and was defiant and thought it scratched, but it was pure conceit.
I expected it to scratch as it was hair, and I had before the mark on wool, which scratched wildly, but this socks did not. Since then, I've learned that it must be a matter of taste whether the yarn scratches or not."
Now that I've grown up and want to share my experiences with others, I've given my boyfriend, who has extremely delicate and delicate skin, a pair of these mohair socks, which she's been hugely fond of.
At first she was very critical when she got such a pair of hiking socks, made of mohair on her feet, but then I can see, despite her contradiction at first, she wears them everyday."
An experienced consumption pattern
"In some cases, I actually have the hiking socks on even though there is 30-40 degree heat. During the summer I often go hiking in the Austrian Alps, where a few good socks are worth an invaluable amount. Even after several days of hiking, there are no blisters to be found. The socks are just hung for aeration, and then they are ready to use again.
A little too easy actually. I actually do the same with the ski socks from Von Broich Mohair, after a day of skiing, then they come straight up and hang, because then they are fresh again for the day after. Six days of skiing is done easily with two pairs of ski socks."
"In everyday life, I mainly use the hiking socks, again because I have very cold threshing, but also because they are always comfortable to put on. Such a pair of freshly washed, clean mohair socks that just slide over the foot, where you immediately get a sense of well-being up through the body, that's just gur, as they say! You quickly get ready to take the day and slide into the kitchen for a good cup of coffee. During the day, you feel how the socks massage the foot, so when they have to go off in the evening, the foot is nice.
It is also clearly recommended to try to wear the hiking socks in the felt shoes for extra comfort.
A full day with these socks doesn't even make the socks smell like it would otherwise do with normal cotton socks. In case I have extremely smelly feet for a period of time, then I wash the socks either after one or two days of use on the wool program or 30 degrees in machine. Therefore, it is smart with several pairs, also because you can choose color depending on your mood or project on the day."
A final comment on mohair in general
'Now I'm obviously biased in terms of the mohair product, but I have to say that I definitely don't think anyone should go down on good equipment, quality and durability. That's exactly what these mohair socks provide. We're all a little weird in our own way, each our favorite color, and if I had to pick a few favorite socks, it's the hiking socks.
After trying a ton of different socks, I must probably say that these frames are corny on my needs, also because the color selection is plentiful. After trying several of the products at Von Broich Mohair, I can clearly favorite some products for hiking socks, throws and felt shoes."
