    I'm hoping for more colors, though. (And I hope they won't accidentally be washed with the cotton socks, although I guess they'll survive that once or twice.)
    How do you recommend washing them?

    Can be washed as inside out in the machine with slow speed at 30C but more secure is hand washing.

    I got my first pair the other day. They are a bit thinner than I thought they would be. I just hope that in the future they can maybe get some patterns to liven up things a little.

    I like Viccel socks so much I wish I had more feet.

    Got my first mid calf pairs a couple of weeks ago. I had been worried based on some comments here that they might be too thin. They're not; they're sheer but feel great. I got only one pair of claret but have ordered three more along with gold and green. They have a terrific lustre. I've tried air drying and machine drying. No shrinkage either way. Highly recommended.

    Ordered mine January 8th and they arrived today. Not too, too bad. They look good at first glance, I will try them on tonight.

    Been wearing the cotton ones for a while now and very pleased with them. They are perfect for the climate where I am (hot and muggy) and it may be a placebo effect but my feet don't stink so much at the end of the day [​IMG] Looking forward to trying out the wool/silk ones soon!

    Kemal,

    Will you be offering socks with patterns instead of just solid colors?

    Yes for sure but need time. We have started trial production but have to work more.

    Anybody have any comments on the Viccel socks vs Pantherella? I have ordered some from both companies and am waiting for my orders to arrive. Curious other peoples opinions.

    First day opinion: cotton over-the-calfs are a bit long... they reach my knee caps. A bit thin as already posted. Comfortable and good fit otherwise. Best socks available for the price. I will try the wool/silk ones soon.

    [​IMG] I think its not just placebo effect coz they worked for my son too. He is almost 3 years old now and his feet were used to stink like big guy and I produced socks for him and after using them his feet dont stink anymore.

    Excellent communication from Viccel, as the socks took a little while to arrive in Milwaukee from Turkey.
    They are excellent OTC socks. They fit perfectly, look fantastic, and seem durable.
    For other excellent socks, try Golf Knickers.com. They have even more selection and are excellent quality.

    We are always trying to keep connected with our customers. We listen them and listening makes our socks better. We do care about them thats why we dont use any synthetic.

    Received mine a few days ago, can only echo what others said:
    - look great, colors are rich and vibrant
    - even the winter ones are a little thin
    - even the "mid calf" reaches up to my knee
    - a little worried about the upper part - looks like it might unravel after a time

    also:
    - big interest in loafer-sized summer socks!

    Can someone give approximate measurements from the heel to the cuff for the mid-calves? I have no interest in knee-high socks.
