Terrific kid-proof socks, in wonderful bright solid and variegated colours. Wash and dry in regular laundry - my sons both have them in primary variegated colours, and they still look new after almost a year of hard wear (they are 5 and 3, 'hard wear' may be an understatement!). Have also made some for my adult friends, which they find super soft!
