These agreeable socks are rife with texture and interesting details. Cables weave and loop, flirting with eyelets as they go. Worked toe up with patterned arches, the Mistress of Donwell Abbey socks are sensibly designed and extravagantly patterned - a fitting homage to Emma Woodhouse. They are romantic enough to suit an elegant lady yet comfy enough for modern shoes.
