Testimonials

I call these my magic socks.  I wear them whenever I need extra comfort because they always seem to be the right temperature and feel so nice and soft on my feet.  I was given the damson and green contrast day socks but I'll definitely be getting more as sure-fire gifts for family members and myself.  They feel lovely!
