Three times each day during spring and summer, I leave the farm and take to the forest path. Together with my flock of Grå Trønder sheep, we follow along the pathway and climb the mountain. We walk deeper and deeper into the forest, until we reach the forest glade, where my little flock frolics and grazes among the forest trees. The «Forest Path Socks» were inspired by these journeys of walking up and down the mountain path and my passion for protecting and growing the wool of this rare, heritage breed of sheep - the Grå Trøndersau (Gray Trøndelag sheep). It has been important to me to help to return this breed of sheep to its original landscape here within the Trøndelag region of Norway, in which I live. Growing and promoting the wool, which was the first used within the original Selbu mitten rose design, is my primary focus here on the farm. This design represents this work, my passion and this story. This boot, hiking, or cosy house sock design is knit top down. It includes a stranded knitting motif (girl or boy), heel flap, gusset and rounded toe. The 7 inch leg is the perfect length for a boot. The foot is knit to one’s own desired length and the rounded toe offers comfort when used inside a boot.
