Making masah on leather socks or woolen socks

Q: What are the rules for masah for feet during wudhu during winter season? Can I do it while wearing woolen socks or do I need to wear leather closed ones?

A: You need to wear leather socks which fulfil the conditions of masah.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

ولا يجوز المسح على الجوربين عند أبي حنيفة رحمه الله إلا أن يكونا منعلين أو مجلدين وقال أبو يوسف ومحمد رحمهما الله: يجوز المسح على الجوربين إذا كانا ثخينين لا يشفان الماء (مختصر القدوري صـ 18)
