Donegal Socks Anise Short Socks
Knitted in Ireland, those short socks rise to the middle of the calf.
Their flecked anise colour reminds the colours and the ruggedness of beautiful and wild Donegal, where the Donegal Socks brand is located.
Those are warm and resistant socks that are perfectly suited to trekking, hiking but also chilling at home.
Donegal Socks are both for men and women.
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.
