Cable-Knit Merino Socks
Perfect for Cold Winters
I have owned a couple pairs of these socks for a couple/three winters, and they are holding up very well. I love them because they are warm without being very thick. And, because they are knee socks, they keep my calves warm, too. Recently, while spending the holidays in the Chicago area I had the opportunity to lend a pair to a friend for a day. She immediately appreciated them, too. Upon returning home and realizing that this Chicago winter was going to continue to be an extremely cold one, I sent my friend 3 pairs of these socks. She LOVES them! So there! I would not only recommend these to a friend, I actually purchased some for a friend.

Not true plus size socks. Barely reach the knee and there is little give.

HARD-TO-FIND KNEE SOCKS
I have a very difficult time finding just plain color cable knit knee socks. In fact, Vermont Country Store is the ONLY place I can find them any more. I usually buy 4 pair, different colors, every year because I wear them constantly throughout the winter months and love them. They're comfortable and durable.
Thank you for continuing to carry them at your store!

Finally! Warm, dry feet!
My legs and feet were always cold and then I remembered where I had found my old Merino Wool socks! I went online and found them again at Vermont Country Store! I also found some of those wonderful old drip candles we loved in our teens and got some for my grown-up children to put in the beautiful cobalt wine bottles we found at Thanksgiving! Thank you so much for keeping these things available to us!

bring back the old ones!
I have been buying these socks for years and they have always been perfect. Yes, the length changes year to year and matching up old and new sock mixes after washing has become one the the challenges on laundry day. But the socks themselves have always been great and essential here in Minnesota in the fall, winter, and early spring. This year for the very first time they keep falling down as I walk. I keep thinking that I musy have an old pair on that have lost their stretch. When I check at night, it is always a brand new pair that I am wearing. Please bring back the old ones or find a new source for ones that can stay up. This is the only source I have found and I hate to have to look further.

Loved the socks out of the box but after wearing them once and washing they don't stay up for very long. They are nice and heavy quality but not impressed after spending good money on them.

I purchased these thinking that they would be thicker than those I purchased elswhere, because of the information about them, they are the exact pair of socks I purchased at another store around our area, and I purchased three pairs at other stores for one pair here. They are the exact cable and material, the same length. I will keep them but will not order more here because of their price.

Love them but disappointed
I have been purchasing these cable knee socks for 10 plus years, I love them so much and this style is very hard to find. They have been a staple of mine every fall and winter. Unfortunately the past couple of years they became way shorter, even the plus size. I can hold up an older pair next to the new ones and they are at least 2 inches shorter. I'm only 5'5" and they don't even come up to my knees. My old pair I can even fold them at the top and they're still plenty long. I wish they would bring back the longer style. The plain wool knee socks are still long but I really adore and prefer the cable pattern. I still love how warm and comfortable they are but I will be looking elsewhere for true cable knee socks.
