Heel from Soak!

Heel – Spearmint

Heel – Scentless

Heel – Cucumber

Heel Cream from Soak ~ $10

New Heel is wonderful new cream developed by Soak. Soak knows how to treat hand-knits & delicates, and their new cream was created specifically for feet that wear hand-made socks. It’s nourishing without being heavy, and absorbs quickly into the skin, so it doesn’t leave a residue on precious hand knits.  I particularly love using Heel on my hands, because it soaks in quickly, making it easy for me to keep on knitting/crocheting/felting/typing. 

I fell head over Heel last month at the DKC Knitters Frolic, where I spent a really fun day next to Jacqueline at Soak.  They say the most popular scent is Cucumber, which flies at the trade shows, and almost sold out at the Frolic. My fave is Peppermint, which has a light, natural scent but doesn’t get tingly like most mint creams. The most interesting one is Spearmint – it’s really cool, it smells like gum! And of course, they also make a Scentless option in case you want your feet to smell their footiest.  

Not sure which to choose? Not ready to commit? That’s ok, come on over to Knit-O-Matic and try them on!
