Our Walks In Lakeland series continues as we walk from Seatoller towards the mountain summit of Glaramara:

After you leave the fell wall and start to make your way to the start of the ascent, Comb Gill (pronounced Coombe Gill) provides an ideal spot for a quick drink and a breather. A scenic stopping point where a mountain beck cascades over dark grey slate and granite.

The small twisted cables in this sock echo the paths taken as the water finds it own way down the mountainside, carving niches and channels as it does so.

This sock is offered in both toe-up and cuff down formats, with a traditional gusset heel flap. The unisex cable design makes use of left-twist and right-twist stitches to result in a pleasing, cascade effect along the sock.
