Wool socks

Yesterday I bought myself a pair of 80% wool socks at LL Bean. I really want to knit myself a pair I can wear. How are these socks? They are slightly rough to the hand but not the foot. They remind me of the wool I am knitting my black shawl out of. They are thinner than I expected. I am surprised they are not ovens but they do a good job regulating your foot temperature. I wore them to bed and my feet didn't overheat.

They feel a bit sweaty right now. Maybe it's time to take them off. I have to hand wash them or they will felt and shrink. I have heard soooo much about wool socks I had to try some. It's on my knitting list this year to complete a pair I can proudly wear. So far I am quite impressed and it makes me look forward to knitting a pair.
