Wool socks made in the town of Glenties, Donegal in a traditional flecked yarn. Their durability and warmth makes these socks ideal for hikes, treks or simply wearing around the house. Making a perfect gift, the paper wraparound has been designed by Shane O'Driscoll and includes a short blurb and care instructions on the reverse. 

The Breslin family are the third generation of a family sock and knitwear business endeavouring to hold on to the skills that their forefathers bore and continue to manufacture socks in the town of Glenties. The rugged patterns of mountains and moor intertwine with hues of wild sea and blue sky in the patchwork weave of colour that is Ireland’s Donegal. Great pride is taken to keep the tradition alive in every pair of socks they manufacture. 

**some colours not pictured here - see  our Instagram or Facebook page for more images**

Care:

Wash gently at 30 degrees, or on a cool wool wash. Do not iron. Not suitable for dry cleaning. 

If you like this..

But are looking for something more neutral colours, be sure to check out our Kerry Woollen Mills socks here.

Sustainability:

The Breslin family are committed to using only regenerated, recycled yarns in their socks for close to 10 years now. Comprised of 80% recycled materials with a reduced impact on the environment, whilst always ensuring quality is sustained. The yarn is manufactured from recycled textiles that are re-developed into the yarn used to create our House Socks. This procedure of yarn manufacturing is a hugely environmentally friendly method which has been discussed, debated and ultimately perfected with their suppliers over years of service.
