Inspired by one of fiction’s most devious villains usually known simply as “The Evil Queen”, these socks are an homage to shape shifters of all kinds. Worked up in a deliciously squishy texture set off by tiny cables, these socks are perfect for showcasing your handpainted yarns. Knit them in a beautiful semi-solid if you’re feeling royal, or show off your wild side in a gorgeous variegated colorway! Your feet will thank you for using one of the luxurious yarns pictured here, provided by Anzula Luxury Fibers and The Yarns of Rhichard Devrieze.
