Hey guys. i was inspired by this thread when I saw how simple bill's toe cozies were. I wanted a really light sleep sock. I made a pair of super thick fleese socks with toe caps for extra warmth, but they came to 4 oz. total. WAAYYYY too heavy! so about an hour later i sat back down and sewed these puppies out of some ~1oz. ripstop fabric i have around and some down from an old eddie bauer jacket. I wanted something for mid winter use with a pair of heavier weight smartwool socks for sleeping without adding too much weight.
These have a differential cut, and a one inch baffel that extends all the way around the silhouette of the foot, which keeps the down in separate top and bottom compartments. With the minimal elastic band attached, they weigh in at 1.2 oz for the pair. I'm super excited about them since I couldn't find anything like them on the market. so I'm happy to share some pics with you all.
