I really like those super-soft fluffy socks you can buy in Tesco in pairs of 2 for about £4. Usually pink and white. But they wear out pretty quickly and they are a touch on the cheap and nasty side, I suspect.

Where would one go for really luxurious socks? Think Kate Middleton relaxing on Christmas Day grin

White Company do lovely cashmere socks but they are spendy, around £35 a pair, I think. I have a pair and love them. Hoping Santa will bring another this year!

I bought some gorgeous cashmere bedsocks in TKMaxx. But the bloody things had to be hand-washed, and the one time I couldn't be arsed and put them on a wool wash they shrunk to doll proportions. Too much hassle.

Maybe treat yourself to some sheepskin slippers?

I've had the white company ones before:

They feel lovely, but do fall apart quite fast if you do anything other than go to bed in them :-)

White company cashmere bedsocks are nice but if those are too down market you could try Brora.

Thanks guys. Yes, it would be great to have a pair that would survive a wool wash in the machine.

For the avoidance of doubt, I am not in fact Kate Middleton. grin Although I bet she lurks!

Have you tried Bamboo socks ?

Knitted bamboo fabric is incredibly soft & hardwearing too

These are the dog's b*ll*x of socks. They go in the washing machine and don't cost £35. I'm not ecstatic on the colours but the socks are so blissfully comfortable to wear that I don't care. I prefer the Companion style; have been wearing them for years in winter. Great in wellies and walking boots.

Is the mohair not itchy OCSock?

Not even slightly itchy, promise! And they make excellent Christmas presents for men.
