how appropriate to close out a season of penny dreadfuls with gentleman jack, the most chronicled character to grace the sordid cheap pages of penny dreadfuls. so many characters and stories have continued into our modern culture in ghostly form, their original pages largely lost to time. jack has continued on into perhaps even more illustrious adventures these days - anyone for some jack on the rocks?

nox yarn co’s the glory and the dream is the gentlest of pastels, a true ghostly beauty, and just perfect for showing off a subtle line of texture up the line of your foot.

welcome to a season of penny dreadfuls, and socks inspired by the 19th century equivalent of pulp fiction.
