Yes, ladies and gents, we are mighty fond of socks. Particularly when those socks come in rich hues and vibrant patterns.
A recent jaunt to a discount store brought these socks from Darn Tough Socks into our orbit–red and cream wool with a delightful snowflake pattern. Frannie’s always looking for a good pair of socks to wear with her riding boots, and these were a perfect choice.
Made by Vermont’s Cabot Hosiery Mills, Darn Tough Socks are guaranteed for life, ostensibly without conditions or limitations. As the company says, “If you were able to wear out a pair of Darn Tough socks, we’ll replace them. At any time.”
While we hope never to have to take Cabot up on this offer, it’s refreshing to know that their product has that kind of backing. Socks take more abuse than just about any other item in the wardrobe. It remains to be seen how well these will hold up to the daily life of a teenage girl, but we have high expectations.
