Having Cold Feet?

I have really been struggling to keep warm with the recent cold spell; I am one of those people who once cold, find it very difficult to get warm again; so I could not have been happier when I was asked by Heat Holders if I would like to review some of their Thermal Socks.

When I first opened the pack, I was very surprised to see how thick and soft the  socks were, in fact I was only able to test them at night and around the home as they are too thick to wear with my boots!

The socks are really comfortable and keep my feet incredibly warm, I just wish they were a bit longer so that they could also keep my troublesome knees nice and warm too. I think these socks will be ideal to wear with wellies, and I will definitely be taking them with me when we go to and stay at Coombe Mill in Cornwall later on in the year.

The socks utilise an advanced insulating yarn which offers a superior performance and their innovative knitting technology produces an extra long looped pile to maintain warmth and in the process boosts the thermal tog rating to 2.3. The socks have a soft brushed inner which helps with warmth and overall comfort. They are available in lots of different colours and styles.

The socks come in at around £10 per pair, which I think is reasonable given how warm and fluffy they are. I will certainly be buying some more to wear with my wellies.

Overall I will give them a Ruby + Lottie rating of 7 / 10.

Disclaimer: I was given the socks to review for free, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.


  1. I love these socks....I have quite a few pairs and they do a great job of keeping my feet warm.
