Ann Budd combines several different cables, twisted ribs, and calf decreases to give her Tyrolean Stockings rugged details - as well as snug, leg-hugging fit. The wool yarn she used is totally green: It comes from sheep raised by organic methods and is processed without dyes or chemicals to create a yarn that looks rugged but is surprisingly soft.
