They aren't nuplets, they're thrums:
Which is basically a little bit of fibre knit into stockinette to make it look like a polka dot. And it makes the inside really, really warm.

I'm a thrum novice but by the time these boots are done I should be good!

Man! Could I use some THRUMS tonight. LOL

Good luck with your thrums --- pretty soon you shall have very toasty feet!
