Made in Ireland, these are the leather-soled socks hand-knitted using traditional Aran patterns. Originating among the fisherfolk of the country's west coast and taken from centuries-old tradition that ties design to meaning, the rib stitch pattern is thought to symbolize potato ridges, historically the staple food of the Aran islanders. Made from 100% Merino wool--renowned as "The King of Wools" for its long-stapled, fine texture, soft hand, and exceptional warmth--the socks retain heat to defy drafts, absorbing moisture to keep feet dry and cozy. Their durable suede outsoles cover from the front of the toes to the back of the heel, providing confident footing across floors. (1 oz.)
