Great Meteor Socks
Even though it now resides south of the Azores, the Great Meteor Hotspot, one of the oldest hotspot trails on Earth, once created the White Mountains in New Hampshire and the New England Seamount Chain off the coast of Massachusetts. The vibrant orange color and the plume of ribbed lace on these cuff-down Valley Yarns Great Meteor Socks calls to mind this surprising volcanic history in New England.
