Tricks : how to discover it is hand linked or not
As we discussed some months ago, one of the main issue about quality socks it is the linking, as the sock is tubolar and usually coming out of the machine open toe. The best way to explain the difference it is posting some pictures (sorry for the bad quality of the pictures, but the budget at the moment doesn't allow a better machine) :
Hand linked toe
Machine linked toe
you can see the first picture the two parts are closed by knitting points, the second one the two parts are cut and sewn by nylon.
