These are more of Jim's Artful Experimental Socks. The verigated yarn at the top of the cuff is cotton and the color is called "life is a beach." Who could resist a yarn with that name? The verigated yellow is bamboo. I've discovered that bamboo is very good for socks. It feels good on the foot and it seems to wear well. The white portion is a silk alpaca blend.
I've been working on some Artful Experiments lately. I've been making Artful Socks for Jim, and I'm playing with texture, color and various types of yarn. The varigated part of the sock is a cotton blend and the yarn is alternately smooth and fuzzy. The white toe is a silk alpaca blend. I love silk alpaca - it has the most wonderful silky soft feel.
