This design is based on the motif of the Fair Isle sweaters, known for their geometric patterns and colorful wool yarns. “Lampaat” is Finnish for “sheep”, and the name, Fair Isles, is said to have it’s origins in Norwegian, meaning islands of sheep.

There are many kinds of yarn and through our experience of decades in the socks business, we use yarns that are particularly suited to socks. For CHUP, certainly only the most optimal yarns that help realize the low-gauge construction and vivid designs will do!
These socks use washable Merino wool yarn. Washable wool shrinks less when washed than normal wool. Merino wool is known for its softness and shine, as well as its hypoallergenic properties. Of course, wool is well known for its breathability, making it a superb choice for winter and actually any time that you want your feet not to get too moist.
