These socks are lovingly made by Artisans in Nepal who spin and dye raw wool from New Zealand using azo-free dyes. They hand-knit the socks using bright and varied colours, making each pair of Socks totally unique. The whole process is sustainable and eco-friendly as Uplift Fair Trade have chosen to source this product that uses the leftover pieces of wool that would otherwise be thrown out.
