For most Finns, wool socks are very essential for their winter. Wearing a pair of traditional wool socks and sitting next to the fireplace is a miniature of the ideal Finnish winter lifestyle.
To find out how the traditional wool socks are made, we paid a visit to Helsingin Villasukkatehdas— meaning Helsinki Wool Sock Factory. It is the only traditional wool sock factory in Finland that’s using carded wool yarn, and very possibly the only one in the world.
There is a scent, even though you haven’t really thought that’s the scent of your home, you realize you are arriving home when you smell it, and it makes you relaxed.
This scent only belongs to you, as it’s formed by those objects you have in your place — books, furnitures, plants, and everything else. We all like joyful smells, and the good smells make us enjoy life better.
