No-nylon sock yarn review: Whistlebare Cuthbert's Sock

It's been far too long since I last wrote a no-nylon sock yarn review so it's time to put that right.  These socks are knitted in Whistlebare Cuthbert's Sock and I've been wearing them for quite a while now so I can give you an update on how they've got on.
