Fisherman’s Cove is a restored fishing village with a boardwalk, shops and a working wharf. It’s located in Nova Scotia where Botanical Fibres yarn is dyed. These socks are inspired by the pattern on the nets that the fishermen use to bring in their daily catch. The sample socks are knit in blue tones reminiscent of the Atlantic Ocean that you can see from Fisherman’s Cove.
