Every Finn knows that wollen socks are needed to keep your feet warm even during the coldest winter months. Wollen socks may be used throughout the year, but the high season is between September and April.
The socks of Helsingin Villasukkatehdas – Helsinki Wollen Sock Factory are 70% wool and 30% of polyamid to make the socks both warm and durable, and they come in sizes 35-45 to fit most of the feet.
Despite that the colorful socks of Helsingin Villasukkatehdas are made by machines from the 1920s, the production requires plenty of human work to maintain the high and even quality of the socks. Each sock is checked by a human before being released to the customers.
The factory itself is a place worth visiting: no modern machines, cellphones or computers, disturb the workers.
