AISTEAR- The Fair Isles were a port of call, a place where cultures mixed and various family crests and coats of arms intersected. This intersection led to the famous sweaters, of myriad colors and complex geometric patterns. “Aistear” means “voyage” in Irish.
These socks use combed cotton yarn, which is a very soft version of regular cotton. Combed cotton doesn't have any impurities or short protruding threads, is stronger than regular cotton, and is made by treating the cotton fibers before they are spun into yarn.
