Description

Light reflecting on the multitude of facets in a dark red, almost black gemstone, every once in a while resulting in a bright sparkling moment - the inspiration behind the Garnet socks can be seen in the twisting and flowing of the stitches and the eyelets that let the tiniest amount of skin shine. Paired with Triskelion Yarn’s luminous yarn that provides an incredible depth of colour, these socks deserve a special place in your sockdrawer.
