SmartWool PhD Socks!!


In April, San Francisco temperatures will average 10°C to 17°C approximating a cold winter’s day here. Scotland will average 0°C to 10°C, possibly like the cold winter’s days at W’s old family farm at Barryrenie near Cowra.

I have a great drawer full of SmartWool socks, which socks I discovered about 6 years ago. They are toasty warm and squeezy comfortable in all the right places due to the PhD elastane., and have a fantastic range of colours and designs. Great for the cold, or painful or puffy feet! I wear them most of of the year, except the hottest weather, with my sensible shoes.

New Zealand grows the wonderful merino wool, and California manufactures them. I have chosen six, now packed into the suitcase, and will wear the black PhD knee-highs on the plane……..
