These toe-up socks were inspired by a visit to the wonderful 12th century former monastery - Bolton Abbey in the heart of England’s Yorkshire Dales. The elongated cable design creates subtle arches reminiscent of the high arched windows – so much a feature of this historic building. The cables and ribbed texture combine to give a unisex, well fitting sock and the fun garter stitch heel echoes the textured elements of the design.
