“There are still many causes worth sacrificing for, so much history yet to be made.” -Michelle Obama

Rocky Shores are cuff down socks with a combination of simple lace, a delicate cable and lots of twisted rib. Some highlights include a heel flap and gusset construction, a square heel turn for a super smooth fit, and a traditional rounded toe. Not to be taken too seriously, we have some unexpected stripes to add some colorful fun to your socks. Combine your favourite tonal or lightly speckled yarns to make this beautiful combination come to life.
