I ordered this product and the first time I wore one pair of the socks they laddered on both feet at the toe, I was not very impressed. Amazon replaced them quickly though and the replacements are fine so I'm guessing it was just a faulty batch. Pretty and comfortable.
The socks are pretty enough and look reasonably strong, but on putting them on, strings of the coloured wool inside catch on your toes, sometimes quite painfully. Also, after the first wash, show signs of stretching.
