Short Dark Green Socks
Genuine irish socks, in short dark green design, are knitted in Ireland in Donegal socks workshops from 80% wool and 20% polyamide for more durability. A must-have on cold winter days, this design covers half the calf.
Wool has absorbing properties which enable to neutralize moisture and thus provide warm during winter and cold during summer. These socks are perfect for hiking, fishing or any other outdoor activities.
Donegal Socks’ natural ruggedness reflects the diversity of Donegal colours and landscapes, a truly wild and breathtaking region.
Donegal Socks is a family-run business of 3 generations, located in Glenties on the Irish West Coast. The wool used to make the socks is 100% Donegal wool.
Deeply inspired by its beautiful surroundings, the wool is sprinkled with various colours (up to 8 colours).
Glenties town has been known for centuries for its woollen sock manufacturing industry.
The film “Dance in Lughnasa” featuring Meryl Streep and written by Brian Friel takes place in the town, where the Mundy sisters (who inspired the film’s story) used to earn a living by knitting socks for local factories.
Today, the Breslin family has been striving for over three generations to maintain these traditional crafts and keeps on manufacturing socks for local markets and exports.
